Viruses & malware DOES exist for android.
However, most antivirus apps are placebos and don’t do much (some have good device tracking features though).
If you’re sticking to to the play store you should be relatively safe (although there are some cases of malware on the play store).

No need for any Anti-Virus. If you stick with the play store and do not download apks or stuff from chinese siites, you should be more than fine!

Long story short, yes.
That is only if you install software from other markets than Google’s, and/or want to track where your device is.

If you don’t need any of those two features, you most likely won’t need one.
