    No, not possible. The modern smartphones (iOS, Android, Windows) have such a built-in mechanism that can protect from virus and prevent any virus related activities. Yes, it may possible to know your mobile details through hacking, if you are using free/ not trusted wifi. Always try to use trusted wifi/ secured network connection. No anti virus is necessary to install on any smartphone.

    Just google smart phones infecting wi-fi network or BYOD infecting Wi-Fi networks and there are numerous article of the security risks. And it's just getting worse with more malware and trojans hijacking routers.
