Help! My Android has malware!
What to do if you think you’ve got an infected Android phone or tablet
We’ve talked about antivirus apps for Android a little, specifically if you really need to use one at all. It’s a good thing to talk about and sort through all the FUD and nonsense about malware on our smartphones and tablets.
Today, we’re going to talk about what to do if you think you might be infected by malware. There’s always plenty of discussion (and sometimes a bit of fear-mongering) about how to prevent malware on Android, but very little about what to do if it happens to you. Prevention is still the best idea, whether it’s from careful monitoring of the things you do or by using an app to monitor for you, but you can survive a malware attack.
