Hi I have a windows phone and want to install the best protection if possible a free program to protect me.

 

Can you suggest the best options please?

 

There doesn't seem to be much in the apps via windows to help.  I've downloaded avg for family but that doesn't seem to be working!

 

thank you for your help.

The Windows Phone operating system can only be changed by over-the-air updates from Microsoft which come from secure servers direct to your phone or during a repair process. There is no way that code from any other source can get into the phone's core operating system. Furthermore, any app that you install has it's own secure area of memory where it and its data are stored. This "sandboxed" memory cannot be accessed by any other apps, and apps also cannot make changes to the OS, so your device is well protected against the threat of viruses.
