Hello Mi Fans!
How are you all?

So today,
I've brought a simple question & straight forward question.
How frequently do you Scan for Viruses in your device?
Virus & ransom ware attacks are increasing these days as everything can be done with our smartphones. We make payments, save personal & Office data, sometimes confidential data too; these all must be safe for us to conduct. Antivirus softwares make it possible without having any issues. People buys costly antivirus for their smartphones which is almost not worth giving more than 200 INR per year.
Mi Users not to worry your phone has The ultimate All Rounder Application for all the things. That's the Security Application .
I guess all of you're already aware of the Security Application provided by Xiaomi in MIUI
For my side, I check once a week. Though I know there's no virus in there ;)
Here's the screenshot of my Security Scan

Here, we've some more options for Security Definitions.
-- Tencent is one of the biggest investment corporations, one of the largest Internet companies, as well as the largest and most valuable gaming company in the world.
-- Avast Antivirus is a family of internet securityapplications developed by Avast Software for Microsoft Windows , macOS , Android  and iOS.

-- VirusTotal is a website created by the Spanish security company Hispasec Sistemas. Launched in June 2004, it was acquired by Google Inc. in September 2012.

Not only viruses, the Security Application also keeps your Smartphone secure in many ways ^_^.
Payment Environment
-- It ensures that your phone is safe for Online Money transactions. This is the most needed feature, as nowadays we all buy almost everything Online. Payments through E-Wallets & card payments are made easy and secure enough so that you don't have to worry about password leaks & all. :D
Privacy & Security
-- No worry for your data to be leaked. Security of the user data is  very important as we store our personal information & all work data is also synced to the Device. Security, as the name suggests keeps your phone safe from thieves unlocking your phone. You can track your Mi Devices using Mi Cloud.
-- As we all suffer from virus, in the form of Viral fever & all. Our phone is also prone to suffer from deadly viruses. There are various kinds of viruses available in the cyber world, which can do that which you can't even imagine.

This Diwali keep your Mi Phones safe from Threats, And have some Sweets .

That's all Fans!
