    No
    Google Play protect does a decent job.
    Just refrain from visiting malicious websites

    As long as you don't browse sketchy websites or download random 3rd party apps that tell you BS like "This can make your phone 100x faster" like an idiot then there's no reason to ever use those sorts of "virus" protection snake oil. Just have a little common sense.

    Android actually doesn't require one, if you get one it will only consume resources and keep running in background.
    i would stay away from any cleaning apps too..

    there is difference between not needing and wanting.
    you don't need doesn't mean you can't have it..
    i for one would avoid any antivirus and cleaning craps on my Android.

    One question then : does bitdefender prevent someone from turning off your phone ? Because if that's not the case, having bitdefender would be pointless since the thief could eventually turn off the phone and reboot your phone in recovery mode and wipe the data from the phone (including bitdefender).

    He can turn off the phone but until a time after 2 restarts phone won't turn of and go into antitheft mode bitdefender can't removed from the phone completely he can't wipe the phone bitdefender plus oneplus will block the access to the recovery mode it also sends live locations and sms and photos of the stealer everytime he turns on or turns of the phone

    And a advice for you guys who thinks Antivirus are useless
    For hackers it's as easy as a piece of cake to get into your phone and steal data wirelessly with or without internet it's better to have a app so tht it notifies for some unusual behaviors and give a options to stop it
    Before telling anything total security doesn't always protects form Antivirus it also protects you from other problems to

    Bypassing such an anti-theft mechanism is a 2 minute job for me. Want a proof-of-concept?
