Antivirus apps are meant to give you peace of mind wherein the event you accidentally click on that suspicious link or email, you know that your device should be somewhat protected. Unfortunately, there are so many antivirus apps out there that it can be a bit difficult to choose which one to go for, and the sad thing is that most of them are apparent frauds. This is according to testing done by Austrian antivirus testing company AV-Comparatives (via ZDNet) who discovered that out of the 250 Android antivirus apps that they tested, they found that two-thirds of them could be considered frauds. They tested the apps out by feeding malware to the devices to see if the apps could pick up on them, and only 80 of the 250 apps did.
