Android devices are great, but they aren’t always the most naturally secure products on the market. The vast majority of mobile malware is developed for Android, as malware creators think they can get the most off of the large base of Android users. They also have many of the same problems as other smartphones, and many people aren’t even aware they are in danger.
What exacerbates the situation is that smartphones contain so much vital data and have automatic access to so many of our accounts that even a moderately skilled hacker could steal someone’s identity with nothing but their smartphone and a few hours to mess with it. Remote infiltrations are becoming easier, and people need to be aware of the dangers of unprotected smartphone usage.
That being said, Android phones have tools they can use and their users have habits they can learn to protect their phones. Here are some of the main things you should know:
