Got an Android mobe with a virus? Congrats, you’re The One Per Cent
Android has been known to be the mobile malware industry’s operating system of choice. Now Google has published a report claiming infection rates on Android devices are much lower than one may think.
While the overwhelming majority of mobile malware is written for Google-powered gadgets, the report claims that in 2014 less than 1 per cent of a billion Android devices in use had a malware infection, and that that figure dropped to 0.15 per cent if people only used apps from Google’s Play Store.
