The most popular mobile platform in the world is Android. First introduced in 2008, it has gone on to be a major success – today, millions of devices, in over 190 countries, are powered by this mobile operation system.

It’s not surprising, as it offers users a lot of benefits, including rapid innovation, a powerful development framework and an open marketplace for apps.

However, it has caught the attention of cybercriminals, who are increasingly interested in exploiting and compromising mobile devices (which contain and deliver access to more sensitive information than ever before).

Android malware, in particular, is an increasing problem … but worry not – in this infographic, we highlight some of the key things you should be aware of.
