    As long as both devices are registered to the same primary account, yes, you can install it on both.

    I don't use any. I am not a big believer in the benefit or effectiveness of A/V apps.

    I believe the best AV protection is vigilance and common sense, but I use AVG free on both my phone and computer. I also run Airpush Detector on my phone. Airpushes aren't technically viruses, but they are damn annoying.

    Downloaded Malwarebytes anti malware yesterday for free from the play store. The PC version of this is considered one of the best

    There's NO active Linux or Android viruses. NONE. There is some malware, yes. Viruses are a type of malware, but not all malware is a virus. That's very important distinction to keep in mind. Viruses are a much more serious problem than other types of malware.

    Use common sense, only install from the Play store and you have little to worry about.
