You can perform the following types of scans:
- Full scan
The Kaspersky app scans the device's entire file system. A full scan helps protect your personal data and money. It detects and eliminates threats (in installed apps and installation packages) on your device. A full scan also detects adware and apps that intruders may use to harm your device or exploit your personal data.
Kaspersky recommends you run a full scan of your device once a week to ensure your personal data is safe. If you do not want to start a scan manually, you may set up regular scanning:
- Quick scan
The Kaspersky app only scans installed apps.
If you don't want to start a scan manually, you may set up a scheduled scan of installed apps.
- Scan of specific files and folders. Lets you scan a file you've recently downloaded or a folder that was recently created or updated.
Due to technical limitations, the app can't scan archives that are 4 GB or larger. The app skips these archives when scanning and doesn't notify you if such archives are skipped.
