How not to infect your mobile phone with malicious apps

How not to infect your mobile phone with malicious apps

 

  1. Only install well-known apps, ones that are extremely popular, from big companies.
  2. Do a clean-up among the apps already installed. Get rid of the ones that you don’t use anymore.
  3. Also get rid of the ones that require too many permissions.
  4. Keep those apps up to date. Vendors constantly come with updates that bring new features, but also fix security and privacy vulnerabilities.
  5. Install a trustworthy antivirus (again: it should be from a big, well-known vendor).
