8,400 new Android malware apps found every day

The Android operating system clearly dominates the mobile market, with a share of around 72 percent. In Germany alone, around 67 percent of smartphone owners use a device with an Android operating system (source: Statcounter). G DATA security experts discovered over 750,000 new Android malware apps in the first quarter of 2017. That represents almost 8,400 new malware instances every day.

This is an absolutely staggering number. I don’t know how anyone using an Android device feels the least bit safe.

A comprehensive security solution is becoming more and more important for smartphones and tablets.

Yes, I agree. It’s called an iPhone and iOS.
