Android's biggest built-in defense against malware is Google Play Protect. There are a few different components to Play Protect—including the Find My Device tools—but a big part of it is malware scanning. Every Android device that included the Google Play Store has Play Protect.

And how do I instigate that?

Also, Samsung has partnered with McAfee to provide pre-installed anti-malware protection on your Galaxy phone.
To scan your device, you can do the following:
1. Go to Settings
2. Tap Battery and Device Care
3. Tap Device protection
4. Tap Scan phone

No problem!
All of the apps and data on your device will be scanned
Once the scan is completed you will be shown whether or not your device is secure.
