Just wanted to know your opinion on these two apps. Which one would you chose to be running on your EVO?

I've been using LBE Privacy Guard for quite some time now and love it. It isn't an antivirus, so don't get too comfortable. What it does, though, is manage individual app permissions and alert you if something is doing what it shouldn't (if you've set it up right). I also like the fact it monitors your monthly data usage, but being unlimited on Sprint means I don't really have to care about that.

As far as I know haven't seen or heard of a virus like a windows type of virus. Linux based devices are pretty smooth . No need for anti virus. Just sucks more battery lol some even require monthly subscription .

Yeah your right. Just did my research. Well what I decided to do was stick with LBE which works amazing and has not let me down yet and I went ahead and installed Cerbrus which has good reviews for an Anti Theft app. If anyone has any other solutions, let me know and I'll give it a try. I'm a test rat for apps.

As for protection a pin would help keep folks from gettin in.. Also if they factory reset the phone which I doubt someone who steals a phone in the first place is smart enough to do. They won't be able to buy anything under your account on the market also can set a pin for that too... Also by the time they figure things out you will of have reported it stolen... I have seen alot of method to remote wipe your stufff. Also locate your phone GPS wise... They have a option on the evo 3d to locate phone .. As long as your battery isn't dead...
