    I know it is possible to get viruses from apps, but what about just going to a website. No downloading, but just going in the website. Thanks im advanced.

    It's possible on computers, but I'm not aware of android malware like this yet.

    Why do you ask?

    Yes I agree with you. Don't worry, surf the web using your android phone, tablet. Some android security app has sits advisor for warn phishing sites that can thief PIN.

    It is very common in the PC world (and very easy to do that on the web site). I don't believe they have done that for Android....yet.

    Same rule for PC should apply to mobile: you do not click on any link that you are not familiar with. Best security always rely on the user. :)

    Don't download random apps from the play store or "paid apps for free" stores and don't go around clicking every link on the internet and your fine. The android malware problem is way overhyped. If your smart about what your doing there's no reason for antivirus.

    There's NO Android viruses. None. There's some malware, but no viruses.

    There are NO Android or Linux viruses. None.
