I have an Alcatel one touch fiercexl & 360 Security is the antivirus/cleaner app I have. I'm not entirely sure it even works like it says it should. Aft I use it & leave the app, and then go right back to it, it seems like (almost always) it'll have just as much (if not the same) things to do. Like Clearing cache, cool down battery, boost, etc. Also if I get a message that says"warning your alcatel has viruses, & You have to do an antivirus scan before phone is damaged" it always says phone is secure no viruses detected. Then why did I get the message in the first place? Is it also fixing the problem while scanning? Also why doesn't cleaning junk also cover app cache? It makes you do it manually in advanced clear. How do I know if it is actually working correctly or if I need a different antivirus? Can you recommend one for me if I need it?

First, That app is shit !
Second, It does nothing but clearing junk and cache of the apps on your device.
It will always prompt you with ads and unwanted bullshit.
There is no such thing as virus in your phone. If it were then it will make you almost impossible to operate your phone as the malware and torjans designed these days are pretty cool.

Clearing app junk and cache is now a built-in feature in android.
The memory booster does nothing but killing all the running apps in the background.
Friend! My advice is to un-install that app ASAP !! save some memory than having an useless app

  • Thank you very much. That's what I ssuspected. It's gone. Now do I need an antivirus or booster app at all? – Michelle Lovaas Jul 16 '16 at 9:56
  • You dont need any anti-virus app. If you want to boost your memory, Use Advanced Task Killer App from the Google Play . Its small and easy to use. It has a widget that can be placed on the homescreen. Good Luck ! – rajatpunkstaa Jul 16 '16 at 10:04
  • Thank you again. I've wondered about that for a long time. – Michelle Lovaas Jul 16 '16 at 11:38
  • If an app claims your device has a virus – get rid of it (of the app I mean). Though there definitely exists malware for Android, there's nothing like a virus for it. Using that term almost always reveals scare-ware. – Izzy Jul 16 '16 at 11:57
  • @Izzy the problem is, it's not usually the app that's to blame. It just grabs a random banner ad from Google. Blame Google. – John Dvorak Jul 16 '17 at 21:18
