Antivirus protection

Once we download and installed K7 Mobile Security for Android, we performed a full scan. It detected all 20 infected apps installed on our test device. We also wanted to check how the app performed in any bigger antivirus tests, conducted by independent testing labs, however, none of them has tested the K7 Mobile Security for Android application, only Windows antivirus protection.

According to the latest independent, German-based AV-TEST testing lab, K7 Total Security for Windows has detected 100% of both, zero-day and widespread malware.

In addition, the application protects users against malicious websites distributing malicious codes and phishing websites.

System-performance impact and scans

We did not notice any negative impact on our test smartphone while using K7 Mobile Security. In addition, it did not affect the battery life or generated too much traffic.
However, as it was mentioned before, we cannot compare our test, with any independent testing labs’ results.

When it comes to scanning performance, K7 Mobile Security includes on-demand and scheduled scanners. Scans are easy to preconfigure or schedule without draining battery power or facing start-up issues

K7 Security offers a very informative and attractive support web page. Users can contact customer support by submitting tickets or calling its toll free number.

The webpage includes tips, solutions, FAQs, knowledge base, user guides and manuals, vulnerability report and advisory, videos and other information
