How to keep your Galaxy S7 Edge safe | by scanning using antivirus app

Knowing how to keep your Galaxy S7 Edge safe from bad third parties is important. In this short tutorial, we’ll show you how to use your phone’s antivirus app to scan the system. It’s easy to do and can be performed in a matter of seconds.

Before we proceed, we want to remind you that if you are looking for solutions to your own #Android issue, you can contact us by using the link provided at the bottom of this page. When describing your issue, please be as detailed as possible so we can easily pinpoint a relevant solution. If you can, kindly include the exact error messages you are getting to give us an idea where to start. If you have already tried some troubleshooting steps before emailing us, make sure to mention them so we can skip them in our answers.

To scan your Galaxy S7 Edge with its built-in antivirus app:

  1. Open Settings app.
  2. Tap Device management.
  3. Tap Device security.
  4. Tap SCAN PHONE.
  5. Wait for the phone to finish scanning.
  6. That’s it!

Keep in mind that you can also use other antivirus apps to keep your system safe. Just ensure to use a good one (and not a malware disguising as an antivirus) from a reputable publisher.

Also, make sure not to install multiple antivirus apps at the same time as that can negatively impact the performance of your device.

Don’t forget, antivirus apps are not perfect. Having one in your system does not give you an excuse to lower your guard, especially when picking apps to install. Make sure to be always vigilant with apps you add to the system. Apps are the usual way for malware to spread on Android devices. You don’t want to compromise your device’s security simply because you were lazy in screening that legit-looking game. When it comes to Android security, you are the first line of defense.
