Antivirus software on Amazon devices is pretty much pointless

Antivirus software is available for Amazon FireOS-based devices, but few to no cybercriminals are making malware for them. All they’ll really do is slow your device down and drain its battery. It’s also important to remember that Amazon FireOS is based on the Android operating system, so any antivirus that is downloaded will be looking for viruses on the Android platform, which may not be compatible with FireOS. Therefore, the best way to protect your device is to ensure that it is always up to date with the latest version of the operating system and to practice safe internet browsing.
