Only pick legitimate download sources for the applications for your Android phone

Google is a giant company, and it has significantly been investing in security. The Chrome web browser now warns users if they are about to enter a known malicious site, although the block does not happen instantaneously, considering the vast amount of sites created every day. For that reason, scam sites are not immediately flagged, and many users visit them before they do.

Therefore, users should only download applications from the official sources, such as Google Play, Amazon, or Samsung. Third-party site downloads might not only inject your phone with intrusive adware programs but also install malware that might actually steal your credit card details, login information, and other important data.

Despite that, Google had its own troubles when trying to avoid malicious apps from entering its store, as multiple adware apps infected millions of users.[2] Without a doubt, such applications are quickly pulled out of the store, but not before security researchers uncover the malicious nature of such dangerous programs. Therefore, you should always be careful, even if you download apps from Chrome web store or Google Play.
