The Necessary to Install Antivirus Apps on Kindle Fire

Generally, if you don't do some hidden dangerous actions include side load or install apps/browsers/extensions from unknown sources, jailbreak device, browse the distrustful web pages or open dubious attachments from email, your Kindle Fire will not be attacked by viruses or malware. But be practical and realistic, only use the official provided functions or APPs is far from meeting our needs. At least for me, sometimes I must install some third-party apps or do some changes for my Kindle Fire.

AVG no longer provides protection on Kindle Fire devices. I contacted both Amazon and AVG. Amazon said I wasn't able to put AVG Pro on my recently updated 5th generation Fire 7 because AVG no longer supports those old devices and I needed to contact AVG support as to how to put AVG anti-virus and AVG Pro on my new Fire 8. I had to submit a service request from AVG about my old and new Fire devices. Udaya Suresh from AVG stated in his reply: "I would like to inform that Amazon devices are no more supported for AVG Antivirus apps. We have officially removed the app from the store and if you could find, it is Amazon that is responsible for further support. ... Currently, Android is the only platform that is supported by us. If I can be helpful again, please don't hesitate to write back me. Thank you!"
