Pro tip: Use Malwarebytes to check app privacy

When it comes to mobility, the issue of privacy is one that should be on everyone's mind. You carry your smartphone with you everywhere you go. You install all types of apps that require all sorts of access. The diligent Android user will always check app permissions as they install each app. The less than diligent will not. At some point, that lack of checking might catch up to you and your personal information could get into the wrong hands.

Fortunately, you can avoid this from happening, even after you've collected a number of apps on your smartphone. There's a feature within Malwarebytes called the Privacy Manager, which will scan your device for apps that access your personal information and do an audit for security issues. It's reliable and a must-have to keep in front of the ever-moving security curve.
