Android is a mobile operating system based on a modified version of the Linux kernel and other open-source software.

The operating system gives the freedom to do whatever one likes with his/her smartphone.

That means a user will find a lot more settings to play with than he/she can with an iphone.

However, there are three settings, according to Google, an Android user must always turn on.

The Sun reports quotes Google as saying that an Android user should think twice before dabbling with the three settings, as it could attract bank-raiding hackers.

The Settings include:

  1. Turn On Automatic Updates

Automatic updates are essential. Google says whenever something wrong is detected, your phone is patched up as soon as possible.

It can be tempting to switch automatic updates off for fear of it using data or battery.

But updates don’t usually install until you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network, so you needn’t worry about that.

It’s however best to keep automatic updates on to avoid bank-raiding hackers.

  1. Don’t Allow Third Party Apps

One of the biggest differences about Android compared to iOS is that a user is allowed to download apps from outside the Google Play Store.

This is great for creating an open environment, meaning app makers don’t have to be on the Google Play Store.

But downloading apps outside of it carries far greater risk, as they’re not vetted in the same way.

There could be hidden malware and you would have no idea – until it’s too late.

So it’s best not to change app permissions in the settings as it will save a user from bank-raiding hackers.

  1. Switch On Google Play Protect

Bad apps can slip through the net and make their way onto Google Play.

Fortunately, Google Play Protect can detect any changes and alert you if an app you’ve downloaded has been flagged as a possible danger.

It’s switched on by default, so don’t switched it off if you want to stay protected……PROCEED.FULL.READING>>>
