Thanks for asking here! As you mentioned HummingBad is a new form of Android malware, and it is creating problems for Android users. The good news is that if you have our Mobile Security for Android installed on your phone, you're protected from this malware.

For your question, if you'd like to confirm that your smartphone is safe, we suggest running a manual scan, and enabling other proactive scan features. We have a support document which explains how to run and set up different types of scans on your smartphone:
Scanning for threats using Mobile Security for Android -  Please refer to "Running A Scan On Demand"

Please let us know if your question is answered. Thank you!
