Android antivirus protection is an issue that has come from Windows inertia where we were almost forced to use an antivirus.
What about antivirus Android?
Long on Android there were no "viruses", in fact it would be correct to say "malware". Since there was no danger, there was no point to use an antivirus. However, manufacturers of antivirus programs could not ignore the Android ecosystem, which in the meantime has become the largest mobile ecosystem in the world.
If at first you do antivirus programs were not on Android, they came with all sorts of functions that take the user's eye, like: emptying RAM, deleting cache, etc.

However, the current situation is nothing like Android on Windows and antivirus are almost useless on this platform. Android meet more sophisticated threats and viruses are not found.
