The Android OS is the most popular mobile platform on the planet, but along with that leadership comes the bad news: it’s also the most targeted mobile OS on the planet.
Infected apps are most commonly posted on sites outside of Google Play, so only downloading your apps from Google's store is a solid strategy.
But even with all the security Google has in place, it’s still possible for an occasional malicious apps to sneak by, which is why having a second layer of protection, like the free Malwarebytes app is a prudent step in security.
The app will scan your smartphone for anything questionable that's already installed and scan every app you download in the future to provide you with a report automatically.
It also runs background scans regularly to ensure infected files did not sneak in and includes a privacy scanner to show you what an app will access to on your device.
Malwarebytes has been an excellent tool for Windows users for along time and now their method of fighting malware is available for Android users…for free!
