    Do I need install an anti-virus and firewall apps on my new HTC 8S Windows Phone 8? Can you catch a viruses by surfing the web or installing apps. If yes, can you please recommend an app.

    Thank You

    For the foreseeable future, you do not need any kind of antivirus software. The platform doesn't really have any points to attack.

    That could change in the future, but I don't see it happening any time soon.

    Do not layer any os with antivirus or similar junk. If the os needs layers of junk to operate, change os's.

    If the 95/98 2000 and xp era was built correctly, you wouldn't be asking about it now. ;)

    Anyway, just enjoy your phone. :)
    awwwww how sweeeeeet. thanks !
