Does A Kindle Fire Need Antivirus Software?

This is usually one of the first questions my clients and visitors ask me.




The answer is usually that it depends on how you use your Kindle Fire. I would generally advise you to install an antivirus app on your Kindle Fire if at least one of the following is true:

  • You install a lot of different apps & games and frequently uninstall them.
  • You install apps outside of the Amazon Appstore. If you do that, then installing an antivirus app is a must.
  • If you connect to many different Wi-Fi networks (not only your own home or office Wi-Fi network). This especially applies to open Wi-Fi networks.
  • If many different people use your Kindle Fire (like your spouse or kids) and you cannot really say how they use it and for what purposes.

Any of the above situations puts your Kindle Fire at some risk. It’s better to be safe than sorry so let’s review the best 5 virus removal apps for Kindle Fire.
