Guidry: Tools to protect your smartphone from malware
Malware continues to infect smartphones at an alarming rate. Security firm McAfee found an explosive 1,200 percent increase since last year in Android malware alone.
Yet if I were to ask if you run antivirus on your phone, you would probably say no. Nobody mentions malware when you buy a phone, they're too busy extolling the fancy features. All those cool apps are fine until you realize some virus has been silently snooping on your activities.
Manufacturers are largely leaving it up to consumers to figure out security for themselves. While the malware problem is particularly bad on Android right now, all smartphones are vulnerable. Just because you haven't heard of a virus outbreak on your phone doesn't mean it's safe.
