How to Check for Malware, Spyware, and Hackers? Antivirus AI and Firewall AI: The Dynamic Duo to Keep Your Android Device Secure
February 17, 2023

As the use of Android devices increases, so does the risk of malware, spyware, and hacking attempts. These security threats can cause significant damage to your device, disrupt your digital life, and steal your sensitive data. Fortunately, two apps - Antivirus AI and Firewall AI - can help you protect your device against these threats.
 

What are Malware/Spyware/Hackers on Android Devices?
Malware is malicious software that enters your device without your knowledge and performs harmful activities, such as stealing data, modifying settings, or deleting files. Spyware is a type of malware that spies on your online activities, such as web browsing, social media, and email, to steal your personal and sensitive information. Finally, hackers are cybercriminals who try to gain unauthorized access to your device or network and use it for malicious purposes, such as stealing data or spreading malware.

Malware, spyware, and hacking attempts can cause significant damage to your device, disrupt your digital life, and steal your sensitive data, such as login credentials, financial information, and personal files. In some cases, hackers can even use your device to launch attacks on other networks, making you an unwilling accomplice in cybercrime. That's why it's crucial to keep your device protected against these security threats.
 

The Dynamic Duo to Keep Your Android Device Secure
Antivirus AI uses artificial intelligence to detect and remove malware and spyware from your Android device. Its AI technology constantly learns and adapts to new threats, providing real-time protection against the latest security threats. Antivirus AI can even detect Trojans from government organizations, including advanced persistent threats such as Pegasus and FinSpy. In addition, the app's Deep Detective technology proactively monitors processes with +100M attack signatures to ensure your device is protected against the latest threats.
 

Firewall AI, on the other hand, is a powerful firewall app that blocks unauthorized access to your device and network. It provides real-time monitoring of your device's network activities and alerts you to any suspicious activity. The app also allows you to view which apps are accessing which servers and wasting mobile data, and you can use filter rules to allow or deny certain connections of an app. Firewall AI can even block unwanted access from known intelligence agencies and government organizations, protecting you from spy servers in countries like China, Iran, and Russia, as well as mobile trackers. 
Its built-in Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) automatically blocks all known servers and IP addresses of the FBI, CIA, NSA, GCHQ, and many more. Additionally, the app protects you from phishing, malware, ransomware, and malicious domains.
 

With these two apps, you can avoid malware, spyware, and hackers on your Android device. They use advanced technologies to provide real-time protection and deep detection and constantly learn and adapt to new threats. Antivirus AI and Firewall AI work together to provide comprehensive protection for your device, giving you peace of mind knowing that your digital life is secure.
