Now you may have heard that iOS is safer than Android. You may have heard that Android is a cesspool of malicious software. But CNet is here to give us another perspective: Google's.
"Google: Android is as safe as the other guys." (Tip the wings to Ramin .)
other boys? Are the other guys online protected by the Washington Generals?
One of the major paths to Android is that users are not getting updates. Well, you'd like to know that:
Google has already come a long way to get phone manufacturers to provide regular updates …
CNet does not give this angle but only 21
But if you can not provide regular updates, you can at least lure customers that their phones are updated as some Android OEM makes. Peace in thinking about updating is really what it's about.
Still, if Google says that Android is as secure as iOS, it must be true. It's not like they've ever said just the same before, for example, back in 2012.
"Not sure? It's safer than iPhone,"
Schmidt immediately responded to laughter from the audience, a largely existing by CIOs and technology makers.
Well, although you will be sad as unfairly unfamiliar with an amount of corporate IT makers way back in 2012, does not mean that Android is not as secure as iOS TODA
Oh, come on! Macalope could not even finish his opinion!
According to a security researcher, 13 games from the same developer downloaded a load from a site in Istanbul, installed malicious software that was persistent after a reboot and had full access to network traffic, and then deleted the app icon. If it's a game, it's a very crazy. A star.
TechCrunch's Zack Whittaker adds:
Google has spent several years trying to double down on Android security by including better security features and more controlled app permission controls. But the company continues to fight against rogue and malicious apps in the Google Play app, which has taken over as one of the biggest threats to the Android user's security.
While you can try to argue that the "Android" operating system is as secure as iOS, "Android" soup for nuts user experience is obviously not. It's for sure that bad things crawl into the iOS App Store, but not in the same frequency or degree of error as on Google Play.
Macalopen will suggest that Google "pulls the other", but even for a four-headed mythical animal, it's not a shaft they have not already drawn.
