Android security is about to get serious. AndroidPolice and Britain’s Sophos Labs report the latest edition of Google Play app includes a placeholder for malware scanning software. The new anti-virus software is projected to be introduced with Android 4.2 and will include prompts such as Allow Google to check all apps installed to this device for harmful behavior?”, “Google recommends that you do not install this app” and “I understand that this app may be dangerous.”
Built-in malware solutions will be a great addition to Android devices, we look forward to the release of version 4.2. Till then, safe computing.
