Why are there conflicting results of scanning from different anti-virus software for mobilephone
Confused about usage of different antivirus scans? Looking out for the reasons of whether malware threats are real or misleading? On this page you can go through advice from experts.
I am using Kaspersky Internet Security for Android(free version). I am using it because I am using the paid version in my PC and is satisfied with it.
Yesterday when I was scanning my phone, I found that the results showed ' threats detected-3 skipped'. I could not see any detailed results to locate the threat object. It did not say it was neutralised or quarantined also. I got scared and again made the scan. At a particular percentage of scan, I could hear a sound just like camera click and then immediately it showed threat-1. Similarly it repeated two more times and total threats detected -3. It was so fast that I could not make out which file(s). But after scan was over it also it showed that my 'device is protected".
Then I downloaded Avast mobile security(free versions0 and did scanning. It did not show any threats. To be more sure, I downloaded Quick heal for android and did scanning. It also did not show any threats.
I would like to know if there is an actual threat or malware or virus or it is just a misleading alert by Kaspersky to induce me to buy a paid version. I use my phone mostly for whatsapp and only very rarely use it for internet when I have to search something very urgent and mostly known sites including ISC.
I would like expert's opinion.
