As an online business, it is more likely that you come across tons of bogus or fake links, including those that might contain malwares. Here’s a website to help you detect unsecure links

  1. Go to https://www.virustotal.com/gui/home/upload
  2. Click on URL
  3. Paste your URL
  4. Click on ????
  5. If all links shows Clean (Green) the link is good
  6. If all links shows (red) the link is bad!

 

Note: Affiliate links might be scanned as suspicious (orange)

I am not sure if it works for files.

But if the file is an online file you can copy the link and scan it.

If the above doesn’t work you can try downloading an antivirus such as Malwarebytes and then scanning the file. It will give you a report; and if the file is corrupted then it will quarantine or delete ot for you.

Is it will do all that automatically after installing?

Most of modern smartphones already have antivirus to scan files, so maybe online business on mobile is safe yet not best

It is safe but we can not manage it like on a big laptop or pc screen. And it also affects our productivity.

@muhammad-aown Online business is safe on mobile too but we can do it on mobile as reliably as on a laptop or PC.
