3059 android malware detected per day in 2018 – Are you still counting on free android antivirus for protection?
The incidents of cyber-attacks on smartphones, especially those working on the popular Android operating system, have been on a constant rise. However, a major reason people still continue to go in for android smartphones, is the fact that these are mostly cheap to buy. However, the year 2018 ended with some disturbing stats with Quick Heal Security Labs detecting over 3 million Android malwares. As Quick Heal goes on to predict the mobile landscape to become more threat-prone in 2019, the count of Android malware is only expected to rise. So, what’s the solution? Download some free or cheap antivirus apps that can protect your android smartphone against cyber-attacks? Well, that’s exactly what millions of Android users across the country are doing. In simple words, out of the 250 Android AV apps tested against an array of common cyber threats, less than 1 in 10 of the apps tested, defended against all 2,000 malicious apps, while over two thirds failed to reach a block rate of even 30%.
