People who download applications and side-load them onto their devices are sometimes at risk, whether we want to believe it or not. Whether it’s from an alternative market such as Amazon’s Appstore or Getjar, it is best to take a safe approach when installing all applications. To help save you the stress, Lookout Mobile Security has introduced Install Monitoring and File System Monitoring. What these actions do is monitor files within the apks before you even install them, assuring there is never any malicious programs loaded onto your device.
We know a lot of our users like to explore everything on Android, even if that means downloading apps from a source you’ve never even heard of before. For these cases, File System Monitoring and Install Monitoring are here to protect you.
Some folks probably think that Android mobile security concerns are somewhat of a joke, but we do know it’s a real issue from past reports. Good to know there are plenty of companies out there fighting off these baddies!
