    Hey folks! Been meaning to ask this. Do I need to get an Antivirus app for my passport and if so, what's the best one? Also a thing that's been making me wonder : why are there no Antivirus apps by any of the usual developers like kaspersky or avg? Might seem like a dumb question, but I'm new to blackberry.

    There are no viruses known to affect BlackBerry devices. Even Android antivirus apps are essentially useless since none of them can run with root privileges which would allow them to access system files properly.

    It's a BlackBerry. Antiviruses aren't recommended because these devices don't get them. No one bothers to make malware that affects a BlackBerry device.
