We all heard about the Ransomware computer virus that is taking over the world by storm. The reason why it grew so much is the lack of security in the Windows platform. Though Microsoft has updated the security patches in Windows 7,8, and Windows 10, it seems like a bit too late. Mobile operating systems like Android, iOS remain safe because of the strict security. Still, there might be a time when someone will find a way to crack even those strict security protocols, so the wisest thing to do is being on your guard regarding your Android smartphone’s security by installing antivirus applications.
