    Great list Amar!

    I wonder why Norton isn’t in the mobile field. It has been offering anti-spam services both for computers and on, internet.

    AVG looks like an interesting one to get started. It surely is a great one for computers. Should try for mobiles now.

  3. Hi Amar Ilindra,
    I am using Avast Mobile Security since last 2 years and I am big fan of it.
