How can I prevent viruses on my Android device?

Several good (and free) anti-virus products like Malwarebytes exist for Android devices and it’s a good idea to have one installed that can scan new installs and do periodic system scans.  Additionally, avoid installing apps from 3rd party app stores or direct downloads from websites.  Always purchase/install apps from Google Play.
