Installation instructions

Anti-virus Dr.Web Light works on any Android devices (requires Android 4.4 or later). You can also install and run this application on your PC or Mac by using an Android emulator app. Here's how to do it:

Install Anti-virus Dr.Web Light on Android devices

Select one of the two options below, depending on the type of file you downloaded from this page.

Install APK file

Find and select the APK file. Tap 'Install' when the APK installer menu shows up. Afterwards, complete the installation by following any additional instructions that appear on-screen.

Install XAPK file

To install a .XAPK file, first download and install the Split APKs Installer (SAI) application. Then, open the SAI app and choose the "Install APKs/XAPK" option. Locate the .XAPK file you wish to install and click 'Install.'

Install Anti-virus Dr.Web Light on Windows 10/11 and Mac

This app can be operated on a computer with an Android emulator. While there are various emulators available, this tutorial uses BlueStacks, which is compatible with both Mac and Windows systems.

Installing BlueStacks is straightforward. Simply download the installer from the BlueStacks website and run it. Be aware that the installer is large and setting up the engine might take some time.

If you don't have other programs associated with APK/XAPK file types, BlueStacks will open these files by default. To install an app, either double-click the APK/XAPK file or drag-and-drop it onto the BlueStacks home screen. Then, confirm the installation. Once installed, the app will appear on the BlueStacks home screen.

That's all! You've now successfully installed Anti-virus Dr.Web Light on your PC Windows and Mac using BlueStacks.

Features and advantages of the protection components
• Quick or full file system scans, as well as custom scans of user-specified files and folders.
• On-demand file system scans;
• Neutralises encryption ransomware: malicious processes are terminated even if a device is locked; lockers not yet present in the Dr.Web virus database are blocked; data remains intact, eliminating the need to pay criminals a ransom.
• Detects new, unknown malware thanks to the unique Origins Tracing™ technology.
• Moves detected threats to the quarantine from which isolated files and applications can be restored.
•Minimal impact on system performance.
• Economises traffic due to the small size of the virus database updates, which is particularly important for users whose mobile device plans have usage limits.
