AVG is free. You can check the play store for others. I came up with 40 or so.

I use Avast Mobile. It takes few resources and has caught a couple of browser baddies.

A few months ago I switched to Avast and it has been working well, unlike the trouble I was having with McAfee which prompted me to change.

Thanks for your help everybody. I use AVG at home on my desktop and it works well, I just wasn't sure about an Android tablet (or even if that should be a concern). I've had problems with both McAfee and Norton so I have no use for them. I'll try AVG and Avast. Thanks again. Sorry for the delay in responding.
