It certainly is not a must and claiming that it is a must for any operating system other than Windows shows a fundamental misunderstanding of how the Unix like operating systems used on smartphones function. Yes, there is malware for mobile devices. No, it is not as prevalent as malware for computers running Windows nor is it as easy to become infected. Sandboxing of applications and user permissions needed to access system files greatly impede malware on these devices. Unlike Microsoft Windows on a computer, being careful and using some common sense will do the trick when it comes to most mobile devices. Of course anything connected is at risk of exploit, but don't exaggerate the situation.talk2me wrote:No OS is complete safe. Anything that can be accessed can be infected too. It all depends on how you use your mobile phone. But in the present scenario an antivirus is a must for a phone, at least a free version. If your usage is limited, a free version is ideal to choose.
I still remember once my old Nokia (symbian OS) set was infected by a weird virus. It started sending vulgar SMSs to all people in my contact list. It was really an awkward situation. Finally I downloaded an antivirus called F-Secure which could locate two viruses and eliminated them. So, I think an antivirus is really important.
