Android is the fastest growing platform in the world with more than 550.000 activated devices per day. It is clear there are millions of Android users who do many things with their smartphones. One example, more than 35 percent of American teenagers use smartphones, you can imagine how many users are there in the market.
It’s also known that smartphones are not fully protected, and now they meet danger more often than at the first time when Google began to promote its mobile operating system. It is more dangerous when we are dealing with malwares — they are made to disrupt or deny operation, gather information that leads to loss of privacy or exploitation or gain unauthorized access to system resources. So I guess you’ll be glad to learn how you can protect yourself protecting your Android-powered device simultaneously from different types of malware.
With the progress of Google (consequently, Android) Android Market enlarges its limits. Being an open code platform, Android is very comfortable for developers, plus it is easier to introduce your app in Android Market than, say, in App Store. This is both good and bad, as there can be many apps with hidden codes inside. During the last months Android Market removed 80 malicious software. That didn’t solve the problem, however, since the number of malware-infected apps has reached 2500, moreover, analysts assume the number will grow and reach 5000.
I guess there are many users who have suffered from malware problems, and even if they haven’t, I know many people who wonder whether their handsets are controlled by others. This is why I dug the net with a hope to find something useful and attractive. I found, and it is introduced to your attention. Study the infograph below and if it is useful for you, let us know.
