Five ways to protect your Andriod from 'Mobile Malware’

I have heard many people talking about high-copy mobile phones. From iPhone to Google Pixel, copies of every model are available in the market. These first copies look identical to the original products, but who knows the depth of the ocean. Always purchase any device or cell phone from the authorized dealers to prevent such troubles.
2. Download From Google Play Store
There are several reasons why not to trust on other app stores than Google Store. These days, no other store is safer than Google. However, Google keeps working on improving its play store and make it even safer for users. It automatically scans your mobile phone wherever you download an application from its play store. You can make sure whether or not the auto-scanning function is working. Go to Settings > Security > Play Protect, you can ensure your phone protection from Malware by doing this setting in your smartphone.

We know it’s not a big deal but still, lazy people don’t go for it and end up losing their most confidential files and bank account details. You wouldn’t believe that super-hackers don’t even need your phone to hack it. They can go with just one swipe over your screen. Keep your phone when not in use.
4. Make Password Change a Habit
