Hello MIUI Fans,
Greetings from MIUI. Nowadays, an Andriod phone has become most popular. SoHackers have wormed their way into the Google Play Store, as evidenced by the recent BankBot malware trickery. They target smartphones with malware hiding in apps that may appear to be games or simple utilities (such as a flashlight app). Once on your device, they work in the background to steal your personal information. As BankBot demonstrates, malware-ridden apps can, in fact, be downloaded directly from the Google Play Store. It is important to note that this is an exception rather than the norm. Nevertheless, the best advice is to download apps only from reputable app stores, as well as having a trustworthy security app installed. By using a reputable anti-malware scanner, you can stay safe and gain peace of mind.

Here are six easy tips that will help you to keep your Andriod Smartphone malware-free.

# Read app reviews
Before installing a new app, read the reviews, both positive and negative. Notice if reviewers comment on whether or not the app does what it says it will do. If you notice comments like “this app doesn’t do what it promises” or “this app is packed with adware” think thrice about downloading: this could be a sign that something malicious is associated with it.

# Check app permissions
Before you download the app, look closely at its app permissions to see if they make sense. Granting incorrect permissions can send your sensitive data to cybercriminals. If anything seems out of the ordinary or beyond what seems appropriate, just say no.

# Always use official app stores
While BankBot did manage to creep into Google Play, that’s a rarity. App files from forums, email attachments, or alternative third-party app stores are much riskier and put you in greater danger of encountering malware. As a rule, only install apps from official app stores.

# Check your security settings
Go to your Android device’s security settings and make sure that the “Unknown sources” field is unticked. (Settings>Additional Settings>Privacy>Unknown sources.) Essentially, this prevents installing anything other than apps from Google Play Store, including websites that attempt to trick you with “drive-by download” attacks, automatically downloading a malicious app when you visit the site on your phone.

# Install the app and MIUI updates
These updates frequently contain security patches that protect against newly discovered exploits and threats. We recommend that you always keep your software up-to-date with the latest release.

# Use a trusted Android security software
Security software, such as MIUI Default Security Scan, can protect your device against malicious activities. If you notice your device behaving strangely, or your battery is draining unusually fast, you may have malware on your device. Security Scanner acts as a strong layer of defense by blocking malicious apps, keeping you safe.
