Android antivirus protection - you do not need antivirus

Android antivirus protection is an issue that has come from Windows inertia where we were almost forced to use an antivirus.

What about antivirus Android?

Android long time there were no "virus" actually correct would be to say "malware". Since there was no danger, there was no point to use an antivirus. However, antivirus software makers could not ignore the Android ecosystem, which has since become the largest mobile ecosystem in the world.
If at first you do antivirus programs were not on Android, they came with all sorts of functions that take the user's eye, like: emptying RAM, deleting cache, etc.

What is the current situation on Android?

Currently Android began to activate a lot of threats and antivirus manufacturers are happy we all say "I told you ...". However, the current situation on the Android nothing like Windows and antivirus are almost useless on this platform. Android meet more sophisticated threats and viruses are not found.

We can sit without antivirus Android?

Android is not Windows, where most users use the administrator account. On Android, to have admin rights, we must do ROOT. This means that Android applications can not be installed elsewhere, without user intervention.

There 100% protection.

Of course, if a "specialist" in the head puts you do, it does on any platform; But for simple user basic protection offered by Android is good enough.
The user must be careful not whether using antivirus.

What to do to protect against malware?

Some important measures for a more solid protection:
1. Not unlock bootloader elsewhere
2. Do not root elsewhere
3. Do not install ROMs dubious
4. Do not ignore the operating system messages
5. APK sites do not enable installation from "Unknown sources"
6. Do not install pirated apps

The most annoying and dangerous stuff.

The path by which we can most easily infect the browser, which can be used to introduce malware into the phone. Are sites with pop-up, super annoying, They can easily infect. It's like a dance through advertisements, which frankly we're all tired.
Last malware I met a script is taken from the browser that sends SMS to a premium number. Luckily I had ROOT and SMS could not be sent without my permission. But you know how it is, many people want to get rid of these banners and hit everything that appears on the screen.
