I intend to buy a tablet computer as a Xmas present for someone.
I've not personally jumped on the tablet bandwagon to date, so don't have much experience of this device,though it will be one that uses Android Jelly Bean operating system
With regard to web security: can 'normal' antivirus programmes and firewalls be used with a tablet (say, Avast antivirus/Zone Alarm etc which I've always used myself)?
Or is it best to use 'tablet-friendly' versions of antivirus/firewall?
If so, where do I get them and any recommendations?
Many thanks to all for taking time to reply.
I intend to load basic security before giving the gift just to make things easier for the recipient.
The Avast app would take care of antivirus...but I can't see any mention of firewalls in the list....
I'm now assuming I just can't use 'normal' Zone Alarm as in my own computer, but must use the app version...
So,is there a firewall app or am I just going blind?
