I have just bought a Playbook and I am delighted with it. However, I would like to know is it important to install antivirus onto it and if so what antivirus software would you recommend.
I would be grateful for any replies,

Hi, I've not seen any anti-virus software for the PB and I don't think you'll need any. The PB runs QNX and BB is known for the security of their software and systems. Now that doesn't mean one day someone won't try to do something but so far it hasn't happened. Now when you log onto a public WiFi locations and file sharing is on you are at risk just like any other system. You can protect against this by going to settings and security and turning on password protect for both.

While we're on the topic: on a public Wi-fi network, always use https:// when accessing your webmail, facebook, twitter etc. If you use http:// your password may be sent unencrypted, and anybody else on that network could see your login credentials.
