Automatic Anti-Virus provides anti-virus protection. The component detects and neutralizes threats, adware, and apps that intruders may use to harm your device or exploit your personal data.

Scan Device

Scan Device performs the following functions:

  • Scan. According to your choice the app scans the following:
    • Entire file system
    • Only installed apps
    • A selected file or folder
  • Update. The app downloads updated anti-virus databases used to detect threats. Update ensures your device has the latest protection.
  • Quarantine. The app moves files and apps detected while scanning to Quarantine. In Quarantine, the app stores files and apps in a compressed format so they cannot harm the device. Once a file is quarantined, you can either delete it permanently or restore it (Kaspersky app recommends that you not restore quarantined files as they might damage your device). Once an app is quarantined, you can only delete it permanently.
