Rate this App

VirusTotal Mobile is an app with the endorsement of the developers from the popular online malware analysis service that deploys some 50 different antivirus programs to analyze websites as well as files stored on your device.

The great advantage of this app is that all the elements to be inspected pass through a selection of dozens of antivirus programs specialized in threats like worms, trojans, adware, etc., so that any problem gets detected instantly. The question of what to do with the suspicious files comes down to you. When you first open the app it does a scan automatically, so you can view the problematic elements at a glance.

The dangerous items appear in red, while the ones that are free of problems are green. Items for which there is no information are grey. In this case you can send them to be analyzed, and within seconds you'll have a full list of all the antivirus programs used in the scan and any alerts that have come up. The more apps you send to scan, the better your results in future analyses.

Should you need to scan not an installed app but a specific webpage, just enter the URL to the page in the button superimposed on the bottom on the screen when you scroll. (You can analyse local files of any kind from there as well.) If you get a green light from the 50 antivirus programs you can feel safe about accessing the site. VirusTotal is, in short, one of the best options to keep your device free of infections. No problematic element gets missed with this tool, which ensures you've got the maximum possible security when carrying out any activity with your device.
