    Hi all
    Today i've seen a anti-virus in the bbworld. Is it a necessary app or is it just useless to have an anti-virus on bb10 devices ?

    It's just a money grab probably. BlackBerry 10 is secure if you stick to downloading apps only form BlackBerry World.

    Does that mean if you download Android apps from Google Play (via Snap) and the Amazon Appstore then you should think about getting the anti-virus app in BlackBerry World?

    I think it's just peace of mind for some. You can get a malicious app but can it really do anything on BB? It can't effect the OS.

    Don't do it!!! I have found none that works at all!!! Don't do it some guy named Chris challenged one of the makers of a so-called anti-virus app and his challenge was removed from the app store.
    I downloaded a test file from the web and tested it with 3 anti-virus apps one was an android and the other was a so-called blackberry anti-virus app and none found it!!!

    Don't do it they just don't work for our phones. What I would really like to know is why does blackberry allow for that type of crap to be sold in our market and also for developers to shoot ads right into our older model phones and they pop up much like an email with a star right next to the message too!
    Look, I know they wanna make money but spam ain't the way to go.
    You can't brag about security and allow a hole big as Texas on our phones at the same time! That's beyond insane!
