    Welcome to Windows Central.

    There is no such thing. Windows Phones don't need an anti-virus app due to the sand boxing technology implemented in them. Even if a virus or malware gets into your phone, however unlikely, it won't be able to do anything since it can't run on its own, and would most probably be deleted when the phone automatically clears up its cache or temporary files. This is in addition to the fact that there are no known malware or viruses for Windows Phones - there may, however, be fraudulent apps. Apps that claim that they are anti-virus apps for Windows Phones are mostly likely fraudulent.

    With WP, there isn't any type of antivirus software available because there isn't a need for it. Each app is sandboxed and therefore the environment is safe. WP is locked down, similar to IOS, and not the wild west like Android.
