TrustGo Antivirus – very useful Security app includes device protection, backups, privacy guard & system manager!
Nov 19, 2012 11:03 AM –
TrustGo Antivirus is a useful security app for your Android device. The app is like a box of tricks; not only does it provide anti-malware solutions, but also a number of management features including: system manager, privacy guard, data backup and device protection. TrustGo is a popular and well-known security company and the app is fully-featured and entirely free!
Tested on: HTC One X
Pros & Cons:
- Robust security & antivirus features!
- Easy to use!
- Nice user interface!
- Additional device management elements!
- App Recommendations are somewhat distracting.
TrustGo Antivirus is a multi-faceted security app that provides a slew of different features to help protect your Android device. The app does the expected thing of protecting you against bad apps and games (if such things exist- I know I’ve never found one) but also phishing sites on your browser.
It doesn’t stop there either. There is a System Manager feature which allows you to monitor mobile data usage, battery life and memory consumption. If that wasn’t enough you can track which apps require which privacy with Privacy Guard and even perform a Data Backup. On top of all this there is a Device Protection feature which lets you remotely locate your lost/stolen device.
So what you get with TrustGo Antivirus is not just an anti-malware service, but rather a toolbox of handy and useful features to help manage some of the uglier aspects of responsible Android ownership. This is actually far and away a better product than the other app from TrustGo which we reviewed – Ad Detector which, while good only did one thing. Another feature of the app which raised my eyebrows a little was an ‘App Manager‘. While the way you can uninstall apps in this way is perhaps useful the smattering of app recommendations under ‘Staff Picks’ wasn’t what I would expect to find in a security app. I’m guessing this is more about monetization than actual recommendations, but it just doesn’t feel right being included in such an app.

For protecting, managing, organising and, surprisingly, finding new apps, TrustGo Antivirus is a sound app that works well and provides all manner of useful tools.
Ease of Use:
The app is extremely simple to use and very intuitive. The main menu, and subsequent sub-menus are easy to navigate.
With so many different features included in the application, there are lots of reasons to use the app, certainly more than other apps which offer far less in terms of functionality.
The UI is simple and nicely designed along with the TrustGo colours and motifs. It is also fantastically straightforward to use and the user-friendly UI helps this.
