@Bev54 Personally I do not think an Anti virus /other security app on Android is strictly necessary if  you do not go outside official sources and are careful  with websites you visit.  some people do use  VPN's  though the free ones will not be of the same standard as  the paid versions. Some information here https://www.kaspersky.co.uk/resource-center/threats/why-use-vpn-on-smartphone   I am happy with the security  protection provided by Knox and McAfee Anti Virus is on Board should you wish to use it.  However opinions vary and you may wish to have a look at this thread for instance.

As @JAMES4578 mentioned its best to be careful. You also have samsung own Secure WiFi available across certain models. I personally do not use a anti virus app. As I prefer sticking to Samsung Secure WiFi. You have a choice which plans you want to go for. You have two choices 24hr unlimited and 1 month unlimited costing £1.79 a month or 24 hr unlimited £0.89. Bear in mind that samsung will discontinue software updates on the S10 around March after 4 years of support

Please could tell me what secure WiFi is, i run my Samsung mobile phones and a Samsung galaxy tab A7 lite with my mobile Internet. Is it possible to use secure WiFi this way and if so how do I use it?

It is available via Biometrics and Security,only 250 mb is free. £1.79 a month as explained by @MNas04. More information here https://www.samsung.com/uk/support/mobile-devices/what-is-the-secure-wifi-feature-and-how-do-i-enabl...

However as far as I am aware only available for phones and not Tablets.
