Test results

Max Total Security for Android was tested with our test device Samsung Galaxy S8 G950F 64GB for about two weeks. The download and installation did not take longer than a regular app. The first impression was positive, as the app is lightweight, easy to navigate, and did not have a negative impact on a device.

Max Mobi Secure Total Security Features

Antivirus protection

We had about 10 malicious applications and other malicious software installed on your Samsung smartphone. Once we downloaded the application, we performed a scan which detected about 80% of all malicious apps.

The application also performs the automatic virus-scan for newly installed or updated applications.

Max Total Security for Android anti-malware Research Lab is continuously providing new malware detections and updating your devices daily.

The application also has Safe Web browsing features that protect users from online threats. We tried to visit malicious or phishing attacks and Max Total Security detected and blocked them all.

In order to provide a complete evaluation of the antivirus protection performance, we usually check how the app is rated by independent testing labs, such as AV-TEST.[4] However, Max Total Security for Android was not tested by AV-TEST or other big independent testing labs. As a result, it is hard to measure the antivirus protection rates tested on a single device.

Additional features

Max Total Security is free to install and offers a variety built-in features, including:

  • Anti-Virus

The application anti-virus features allow users to perform a quick scan, full scan, and memory card scan.

Max Total Security for Android

System-performance impact and scans

Even though the application includes a variety of features, it is relatively light on system resources. It had an average impact on our test device, at 15%. However, it was not noticeable. The app does not slow down the device or have a negative impact on battery life. However, as it was mentioned before it has not been tested by independent testing labs such as AV-TEST, so it is hard to measure how the security suite would perform on a different device.

When it comes to scanning performance, Max Total Security for Android offers quick, full and memory card scans. The scans are quick and without noticeable impact on a system.

User interface

Max Total Security for Android has a simple user interface. The main menu bar appears on the main window and allows users to access the wanted feature within a single click. The interface is well-designed and easy to understand. The main colors are white and red.

Feature Score
Antivirus protection Unknown
Security and Privacy features Basic set of security & optimization features
Scanning performance Average scans without a negative impact on a system
System-performance hit Light
User interface Simple

The final verdict

Max Total Security for Android is an all-in-one security application that is capable of protecting the device from viruses and optimize its’ performance. It provides a decent set of features with a minimal impact on the system performance.

However, the application lacks some background information and reviews from independent testing labs. As a result, we could not provide an overall evaluation of antivirus protection and usability features.
