A cell phone virus can function in much of the same ways as a conventional computer virus, installing harmful files on your phone. The popularity of proprietary operating systems has somewhat controlled the spread of mobile targeted viruses and other malware because viruses need to be designed to attack specific operating platforms, but that doesn't mean you're safe without protection. Viruses can attack mobile devices in a number of ways: Often they're hidden in e-mail attachments like photos or games. When you install and open the attachment, you infect your phone. Bluetooth devices are another good vehicle for infection. The effortless two-way communication that makes Bluetooth technology so darned convenient also makes it easy for an infected Bluetooth enabled phone to connect to any other Bluetooth devices within range. Once connected, it can trick the user into downloading the virus onto a clean phone. Surfing suspicious sites can net you an infection, too. Before you get too engrossed in the fun features of your mobile device, make sure your equipment and private information is protected. When it comes to being secure on the road, the options come in a few different flavors. From anti-virus apps that can locate your lost or stolen phone to full-featured apps that also encrypt your folders and files, the best mobile anti-virus is the one that suits your unique needs. You can find comprehensive protection for free, or pay a little for some nice extras. Most anti-virus software is equipment specific, matched to the operating system built into the phone. Mobile devices require compatible anti-virus protection. Open-source operating systems like Google's Android or Microsoft's Windows Mobile may offer more potential anti-virus products but still lock you out of some applications whose names you may recognize or whose products you've used before.

A virus normally requires an action to infect a victim. For instance, the malicious programs inside e-mail attachments usually only strike if you open them. The effect of a virus can be anything from a simple prank that pops up messages to the complete destruction of programs and data. Mobile antivirus software is detection and protection tools used to identify and remove viruses on mobile devices. Modern antivirus software can protect devices against a wide range of malware, including worms, viruses, and Trojans.

A spyware program is rarely alone on a computer: an affected machine usually has multiple infections. Users frequently notice unwanted behavior and degradation of system performance. A spyware infestation can create significant unwanted CPU activity, disk usage, and network traffic. Stability issues, such as applications freezing, failure to boot, and system-wide crashes, are also common. Spyware, which interferes with networking software, commonly causes difficulty connecting to the Internet. In some infections, the spyware is not even evident. Users assume in those situations that the performance issues relate to faulty hardware, Windows installation problems, or another infection. Some owners of badly infected systems resort to contacting technical support experts, or even buying a new computer because the existing system "has become too slow". Badly infected systems may require a clean reinstallation of all their software in order to return to full functionality.

Some viruses take effect as soon as their code is executed; other viruses can lie dormant. A virus that replicates by resending itself as an email attachment or as a part of a network message is known as a worm.
