Product Description

Protect your mobile device from viruses and spam with a popular anti-virus from leading Russian anti-virus vendor Doctor Web, whose acclaimed products first appeared on the market in 1992.

The application does not affect the operating system performance, and — more important — does not reduce the battery life. You can use simple and handy desktop widgets to access the application.

Dr.Web anti-virus Light uses the unique algorithm to detect malware – Origins Tracing™ for Android – which allows detecting the new virus families using the knowledge database on previous threats. A unique record is created for each malicious program and describes the behavior algorithm of this sample. This provides the efficiency of detecting new modifications of the whole virus family and significantly reduces the size of virus databases.

Dr.Web anti-virus Light key features:

– Constant anti-virus protection and threats neutralization. The anti-virus check of the file system is carried out by file monitor SpIDer Guard, which scans in the real-time mode all the files being saved in the device memory.
– On demand scanning is carried out by a specific component – scanner. Dr.Web anti-virus Light allows to perform quick and full scan of the file system or scan only critical files and folders.
– Quarantine. The detected threats can be deleted or moved to quarantine, where you can review the detailed information on the threat.
– SD-card protection from contamination by autorun files and Exploit.Cpllnk, which represent a threat to Windows.
– The small size of updates for virus databases allows to save the traffic and your money if you are using the limited mobile tariffs.
– Detailed statistics on the anti-virus operation.
– Two handy widgets to choose from to manage the anti-virus protection (sizes 1х1 and 4х1).

1.0 out of 5 stars Knocks out Kindle Fire on a Full Scan December 10, 2011
Verified Purchase
I own a Kindle Fire, which I treasure. And so I thought anti-virus for the Kindle Fire was a good idea. So I downloaded Dr. Web Anti-Virus Light and immediately ran a quick scan. Worked beautifully. But when I tried a full scan, it knocked out my Kindle Fire, leaving it non-responsive. I was able to retrieve everything with a hard boot (on button 20 seconds, tap the on button). To say the least, I immediately removed this program from my Kindle. Yes, it was free, but it wasn't worth it. I spent an hour or more thinking I had killed it until I searched for help on Amazon and learned about the hard boot. Stay away from this product, for the Kindle Fire anyway.

This app is fabulous. Did a complete system scan in less than 3 minutes. Easy to use and free -- can't beat it for free virus protection. Just FYI I used this app on a Kindle Fire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Anti-Virus November 22, 2011
Verified Purchase
I was really nervous about using my Kindle Fire without protection. I read the product reviews on various anti-virus apps & chose this one over AVG as it's reviews weren't as favorable. It's great, scans everything that you download!! A number flashes in the notification area to call your attention to the scan! I know that the Kindle is protected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Fire - Simple layout, fast, and works fine December 18, 2011
Verified Purchase
Works fine on Kindle Fire even on full scan. Full scan takes only a few minutes. Easily turn protection on or off. Sent out request for a fix for the false positive on ebay app earlier, and didn't notice problems after. Didn't seem to slow the device. You can go to settings and set it to daily auto update.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep your Kindle Fire safe from viruses March 28, 2012
Verified Purchase
Excellent app. Scans all downloads for viruses and protects you from viruses while browsing the web. No interference with use of Kindle Fire, works in the background. From what I can tell, does not slow down performance either. A must have for all Kindle Fire owners.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Dr. is in December 18, 2011
Verified Purchase
I don't know how good the protection offered by Dr. Web really is but the app loaded, ran both quick & full scan and update. No lock up or other signs of problems on my three day old Kindle Fire. Tentative rattling of 4 stars because of uncertainty as to quality of protection.
