Android Security

As long as you do three things before downloading an app, you don’t need antivirus apps slowing down your phone and taking up valuable space.

2: Read the comment section. People will scream if there’s something funky going on with an app.

3. Knowledge is power. Read these two forum threads:

Android permissions explained, security tips, and avoiding malware.

Push advertising: notification ads, unwanted shortcuts, browsers redirected.
