    Antivirus for Nokia N8

    I have been using Nokia N8 mostly for business purposes rather than multimedia. There are several documents in there which are very important regarding my work. There are calendar entries which contains shorts notes, meetings, tasks etc. I am also checking mail and sometime browsing web through this mobile. So I think that there might be chance of getting affected by viruses or some malicious applications. Because sometime also connected my mobile to a wifi network which resides either in my office or home. So there probably have a chance of getting infected. Now my request is there any good antivirus program for Nokia N8 either from Nokia itself or any other popular antivirus vendors? The antivirus must be as good as those in computers and should be updated regularly. Is there any one option like that?

    I think that it is not a good idea to install antivirus program for such a good mobile phone or smart phone from Nokia. As far as I know the symbian has better security comparing other platform. There are no issues from the Nokia that their mobile has been hacked or infected by dangerous virus so far. There are small things happened earlier due to users negligence but for now most users have aware about this. If you install any antivirus program for your mobile like N8, it probably going to slows down the phone operation as well as the start up. This might cause the other applications also including your SMS and calls. So donít go for it yet until there is a security product from Nokia itself which should be genuine.

    There are no such antivirus programs from Nokia for its N8. When I searched into the OVI store I couldnít get even single result regarding whichever version of Antivirus program. There are only security programs from third part vendors. They are just the purpose of money making and the popularity of the corporation. They may provide little amount of security to your computer. But when browsing and checking email, donít think that will provide instantaneous protection or a real-time security over web browser.

    N8 is a old phone and there is no updates provided for the same. For keeping your device away from virus the best thing you can do is do not install application from any site. Also do not connect your phone directly to any unknown system. Better scan the system before connecting the phone. A number of virus comes from the pc directly that can spread in other system as well. Microsoft Defender is a easy to lightweight antivirus that you can use to scan your phone storage.
