hi,

it might be cool if there will be a built in virus scanner that protects the whole system(browsing and data) so we don't have to download one from the app store every time. i use cm security now so maybe some inspiring....just a suggestion because security is very important

No. That is bloat. We will not take $$ away from our fellow developers that rely on ads to support their apps...

Only people who are incompetent need antivirus on android. Unless you grant any and every apk su than it won't affect your device in a harmful way....much like if you allow an apk to have special permissions don't complain that you lose your sensitive data.

I didn't have antivirus on my Windows PC, and it turned out to be fine!
Don't use unknown third party markets and please read the permissions before installing anything
