Windows 7: New smartphone

Windows 10 Pro

Security apps are a joke on android. Do not fall for them. There just there to make money.

They are not effective at all at removing malware from an android device. If you stick to the google play store, do not sideload apps and read the permissions of the app before installing it you will be fine.

That's an opinion. Which you are entitled to.

I prefer to actually modify my device as I see fit, others just want it to work. Different strokes for different folks.

If you'd prefer something different; some are free like mbam, some for a price: | security apps
Ok mate I will look at that one too as I was thinking of the Kaspersky one as all my machines run Kaspersky - they do a stand alone version if it is as good as the ISS then it should be safe well as possible as that is Kaspersky Internet Security for Android | Android Antivirus Software | Kaspersky Lab but I would like the MBAM as it does "play" with Kaspersky ok.

The provider told me Google build in some security but I am thinking maybe it will be a bit light on. But like I aid I will definitely look at the MBAM.

Using Smartphone as dashcam
Any one else here do it, or have at least tried it? I was sitting in a carpark bored when it occurred to me to use the video on my smartphone as a dashcam. Luckily my phone+case wedges nicely against the dash and the screen. I was pretty pleased at the result. If you already haven't, give...

Which Browser are you using on your smartphone?
As the title says, which browser do you use while accessing web on your smartphone? I use either the default Android browser or Maxthon. I use Maxthon because it looks like Google Chrome, it has bookmark sync option plus many great add ons. :) What's your choice? ;)

The pocket spy: Will your smartphone rat you out?
"THERE are certain things you do not want to share with strangers. In my case it was a stream of highly personal text messages from my husband, sent during the early days of our relationship.
