Re: Money is the name of the game....
That's what I meant. Carriers have done an excellent job contributing to the problem.

Re: Money is the name of the game....
@Michelle G The problem isn't releases, as my understanding is that Google does a pretty good job with that. 

It's the actual updates, a huge problem because device manufacturers are dictating when users get updates. It's a pretty messy situation.

Re: Money is the name of the game....
The release & update schedule for Android may have accounted for some of the scary apps. Older hardware can't run newer versions so there are undboutably some security holes...

Re: Money is the name of the game....
@Michelle G Microsoft was simply unable to make a compelling mobile phone. Instead, Google did it. Amazingly, the open sourcing of Android I think it what has created such a fractured environment full of scary apps.

Re: Android vs. iOS
@Michelle yes I knew that all the app providers scan but sometimes an app that is harmful if not malicious does slip through. As technology evolves, I think the app providers will get better at detecting them until then keep your malware app updated!

Re: Android vs. iOS
@maryam Google does go after rogue and malicious apps (using something they call Bouncer). More than 400k malicious apps were detected in October so I'm not sure how well it's going at Google...

Re: Android vs. iOS
As much as we try there are times they get something from an app store that looks harmless, even adults fall prey to apps and emails with downloads. As much as we try, we are still sometimes victimized.

@Maryam one thing we drill into the kids early on is not to download anything without checking it out with us first.

Re: Mobile Protection
@afwriter that is a serious security problem. I'm surprised we have not seen more progresss on that front.
