There are plenty of apps that you can use on android for security. Some of them are antivirus, malware remover and some are monitoring software. So depending on what you need you can download and use them. Here are some apps to use on android.

1. 360 Security: It's free and also keeps an eye on many security threats. It also takes less memory. And if you are regularly downloading or playing games online then it is good.

2. Comodo Security: This is an app from the makers of desktop antivirus software. They remove most of the security issues. I find it quite harder to use on mobiles with low RAM. I guess you should take a look at that.

3. CM Security : Most of the mobiles these days have this app pre-installed. They have large database of antivirus solutions. Also you should take a look at some of premium options of this app if you regular have virus problem.

There are many other security apps that you can use. Depending on your mobile or Tablet RAM you can find that it makes sense to use the app that caters to that spec. I'd say go ahead and take a look at some of the security apps mentioned above.

First of all, if you are using a smart phone, look for "Permission Control" (my device have - Lollipop 5.0) or any settings like it in the Settings of your device. It will show what all permissions ate used by each application. You can understand what each app can do in the device.

If you doesn't have anything related to this in your settings. go for the apps that are being used for this purpose. Almost every AntiVirus, Cache Cleaners, etc shows you the details. However it is good to go for trusted ones which include:
1)Clean Master
2)AntiVirus like QuickHeal, Avast, Norton, etc

Some commonly used security apps for android phones are:
1) Avira Antivirus Security
2) Avast Mobile Security
3) 360 Security
4) CM Security
5) Clean master etc,.

In the above listed security apps, I used the third and fifth ones. These apps help in maintaining the RAM usage, scanning for viruses. RAM usage is important because mobile phones hang if high amounts of RAM is used. Virus spreads in the mobile if it is not removed in initial stages. So, anti-virus is important. Now a days, smart phones are having pre-installed security apps. Finally, I recommend 360 Security (the best).

Hope this answer helps.
