Of course, it best to prevent accidents, but I don't think anyone needs to be overloading their devices with spyware detection, malware detection, etc. Rather just read up on how to do basic protection against attacks.
People definitely shouldn't be embarrassing themselves with statements like "my phone's more secure than your". lol
"Check Point has also released a free QuadRooter Scanner app" Which will probably ask for permissions and along with the QuadRooter, giving their company access to scared customers data. SMH

In fact Android doesn't have any major problems with the OS itself (or the support Google and the many contributors give to it's code), what truly hinders it is the lack of support after most manufacturers put it in a device.
All systems will inevitably have some bug that will lead to some security exploit -- that's not really "a negative" of any system -- what really matters is how things are handled after that.
Regardless of the system, the moment a CVE is left unpatched (particularly those that allow RCE or PE) we are calling upon ourselves a whole world of hurt. Google usually does it's job well patching this bugs/vulnerabilities, but things are broken after that (ie. most devices don't actually get the patch at all).
As weird as it may sound Android isn't broken but actually... it is. Something must be made to patch all devices as quickly as possible. The different patch levels of the Nexus Security Bulletin already show some promise in this regard, but (at the moment) most are still in a not so good place.

All my other related posts were that "Android still has less vulnerabilities than the other two big players" while the other guy was being a joke saying "Android security is a joke" while implying the others aren't.
Anonymous, 09 Aug 2016Why buy laptop? You can buy powerful desktop computer because of durability and quality.
Man ... morewell I buy laptop for mobility reason, and the previous comments intended for sarcasm to Carol..
It seems we got off from the topic, but as a pc enthusiast I'll reply to your comments.
The specs are depends on the purpose of your pc and more importantly your budget, my friend. If you were unable to afford it, I suggest you lower the specs within your budget.. I can recommend cheap Intel Xeon E3-1200 V5 with C236 motherboard (don't use C232 chipset), 4x 8GB ddr4ram, and GTX 1070 or 1080 if you need vga card that quite equivalent with professional-grade like quadro, buy the latest TitanX (pascal) it's whopping expensive at $1200 but still far cheaper than cheapest nvidia quadro while still powerful enough. Use ssd as your system drive, and hdd as your data storage. For more information, go to a tech forum, ask them, they will help you and give advise to your needs.

Are you in the 2016 Presidential race / Male / unapologetic/ fight starter
Of ALL the hackers anywhere on this planet trying to find a back door and ONLY Android and IOS fall prey there is you answer
I will spell it out THEY CAN'T.
that is whu there is NO storeies re Blackberry and Windows!
A few years ago when the Angela Merkel the German Chancellor discovered they were being spied up by the NSA what phone did she order Blackberry
If you know nothing stick to hospitality
"The only reason BB10 and W10 phones are not in the news is because nobody bothered to find a hole in those OS. No OS is perfect even in the latest update. Hackers will find a hole and the security team will patch it. And the cycle goes on. Most of the time it's the good hackers(hired by security companies) found the weakness and they will report and keep it a secret from public until it is patched as per the news article. The only danger is when a bad hacker found an exploit."

Bless you. Vote Trump?
I don't care if I get 1 virus or 10 viruses. I never pay for anything online, I never buy apps.
So what if it has my email password? Whoopty do! They can make everything in my account public. I don't give a s..t! Google knows everything in it anyway..
These exploits are nothing but a way of controlling your fear level..
If you really are on a hacker's list, there isn't much to do if they really want you hacked..
Buy if you use your credit card on your phone, stop visiting torrent and porn sites. Those are the ones that will infect your phone for sure.
I remember I was trying to download a torrent and when I pressed download, a popup message appeared and immediately my messaging app started sending hundreds of messages to a strange number. Big deal! With only 4 cents on my prepaid card, all I did was to laugh out loud..

After you install non-play store game , you must uncheck.
And check it again, if you need later.
Many people forget that and that's how many sites trick users, they force download apk and then users accidentally click and install them.
Carol, 09 Aug 2016Buy a windows phone. ;). Boy, am i glad i don't like android.Thanks man. I'm android user and don't want to switch to Windows or iOS.
1) This article itself is no reason to switch from android to iOS or Windows.
2) Android is secure as well. But you must use if careful and smart way.
3) I have two android phones and never got any kind of virus.
4) You need to install something only from play store.
5) If you want to sideload an app do it from apkmirror. It is safe website.
Anonymous, 09 Aug 2016again droidsheep jumping on celebrity photos getting hacked from icloud.
their photos werent ... morethey didn't gave passwords, but private information.
Which allowed hackers to guess, what password would be.
Meanwhile iCloud allowed unlimited attempts for login, so hacker could use "brute-force" Attack.
And Apple hasn't enabled two step authorization by default.
So it's partly Apple's responsibility too. Celebs can be dumb and use short password with personal information (using BF's name as password, for example) but I think it's being idiotproof , what made iOS so popular and apple should have thought about this type of attack before.
