I use Lookout on the phone and tablet for virus scanning. It scans every app and every update. Never had an issue.

I use SeekDroid for locating a lost or stolen device. Don't have to keep GPS on all the time, so no battery drain. I have tested the locate command and it appears to be much more accurate than the other location services, including Lookout. Also has great remote commands (you can track from a PC or a friend's phone) you can send to wipe the device, sound an alarm, etc.
If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day. Teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks, months, maybe years.
