How to identify fake Samsung tablet PC Antivirus?

Hi,

In my experience, the best way to identify them is if the name is unfamiliar. The best way to know if an antivirus is genuine is to make sure you download it directly from its own website and check if they offer the antivirus for Android mobiles/tablet. If they don't, then you are sure that the one you see on the Android store is fake.

Hope this answered your question. Good luck!

You can also find lots of antivirus downloads from different websites that are maybe posted by fellow users.

That’s why it is still very wise to download the software from the original source. Here are several antivirus programs you can try on your Samsung tablet PC.
