AVG Antivirus: Protect your Android Device before the next Ransomware affects it

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 Windows platform, though Microsoft has updated the security patches in Windows 7,8 and Windows 10, but it seems like a bit too late. Mobile operating systems like Android, iOS remain safe because of the strict security but 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 the security of your Android smartphone by installing antivirus applications.
