Protecting your Android device from malware and viruses

AndroidlogoOk, so you purchased the kiddies (or for yourself perhaps) a shiny new Samsung or Google Android device for Christmas. Before bundling it all up in some nice wrapping paper, your very next step should be to protect it from a serious number of mobile app nasties out there on the Google Play Store or Amazon (and other stores alike).

Not sure where to go?  Take a step over to AV-TEST and check out their review of the top apps to protect you. They are independent and referred to quite often by the big guns in the IT industry, so are trustworthy.

Need to wait up until your gadget-addicted littlies are sleeping so you can put the new gadget under the tree? I suggest you make a good strong cup of your favourite beverage and then download a full PDF report of the 2013 AV-Test results for Android here. Happy Reading!
