How to block malicious Android notifications
By Paolo Amoroso • Issue #28 • View online
By a show of hands, did you ever help a family member or friend clean up a Windows PC infected by viruses or malware? I see several hands.
Now raise the hand if you did the same for Android malware. Far fewer hands now. That’s because Android is more secure than the tech press makes it seem. Unless you don’t pay enough attention or do something stupid, such as installing random apps from shady sources.
Here’s where the guide below to cleaning up annoying notifications and malicious promotional behavior comes in. Bookmark the guide in case you need it.
I have been using Android since 2009 and caught no malware. Did you? Just reply to this mail.
