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.
