Mobile Antivirus?

Should we be running some sort of antivirus on our TP2s and if so which one?

Re: Mobile Antivirus?

Ive been running winMO for 3 years, never had any anti-virus software, and never had a virus.... just stick to the main sites... dont download anything from anywhere sketchy... theres really ever only been a few reports about viruses in US cell phones.. the most recent ones were the "3d anti-terrorist video game"-was making international calls at night from the devices it was installed on.... and just last week or something there was an issue with "wallpapers" contain harmful things-but that was Android...

Were running a hackers platform here(winMO) but honestly, everyone seems to be really good... I havent seen, heard, or read about many viruses really in my 3 years.. id say Anti-Virus is just for the paranoid or over-cautious

Re: Mobile Antivirus?

There's a piece of software called lookout, in the marketplace which if you want to have something, may be worth looking into.

Re: Mobile Antivirus?

Thanks! I had not seen much about it and a guy I work with brought it up in conversation so I figured I would at least ask. I didn't think it was necessary and think I will pass on adding it to my programs. Again, thanks for the fast responses!

Re: Mobile Antivirus?

What if you have a virus that's doing something without your knowledge and maybe only a few other people have that same virus?
