Alibaba Mobile Security is an online mobile security application service that claims to protect different applications from potential risks, threats and/or vulnerabilities. This mobile security app which is predominantly Chinese-based is somewhat streamlined, with information about it empirically non-exponential and abstruse for many potential users. However, it is a quite modest mobile security app with fair ratings about its features, usability and protection abilities. In July 2017, AV-TEST proclaimed in its Product Review and Certification Report that when it came to the detection of the latest Android malware in real-time, Alibaba Mobile Security had an efficiency of 99.6% as against the 98.3% industry average value; while this mobile security app had a 99.8% efficiency for the detection of latest Android malware discovered in the last 4 weeks as against an industry average value of 99.6%.
Notwithstanding the above-mentioned however, Alibaba Mobile Security still scored lesser than many competitive mobile security apps when its impact on the usability of the device was tested.
