    Let's say no. An Android anti virus app wouldn't work too well, it can only touch the Android portion. If you do decide, find a native scanner in the app store.
    Just don't download and install stuff from super shady sources. There's a website I use and some browser extenstions that allow me to download straight from the G Store.

    The only place you are going to get malware is from an Android app. And it would be contained within the android runtime and would not spread into the rest of the BlackBerry OS. So an android apk scanner in droid would be fine. Just do your research and get a legit one.

    Also won't be needed for long. BlackBerry Guardian is coming.

    BlackBerry server based scanner that scans any app that you install outside of BlackBerry World. Tells you if it's safe or not. All apps in BlackBerry World are already scanned by BBG.
    This new feature is in 10.3.
