    Its a Samsung Galaxy.
    Every now and then I get the message "turn on anti malware to protect........".
    It seems genuine but if its needed why isnt it automatically on as a factory setting?
    Any ideas ?

    I've had a Galaxy for about 5 years now and never had malware. The only problem I've had was when I must have accidentally opened and joined a wrestling website and it deducted a subscription from my phone bill. My company's phone supplier sorted that out for me.
