Android users know that they need some sort of protection on their device to prevent malware and viruses from taking over. One of the popular options when it comes to free protection for Android smartphones, tablets, and other devices comes from AVG.

AVG says that this is the first time that the feat has been accomplished by any security application. AVG also notes that it was the first company to provide a free security application for Android devices.
