Malware and viruses are potential threats to any computer system, including mobile devices. To protect your mobile device from malware and viruses, you should follow these precautions:
- Always update the apps on your mobile device to ensure that any bugs have been fixed.
- Use only well-known app stores to download new apps.
- Avoid "jailbreaking" or "rooting" your mobile device, which manipulates your device’s operating system and may make it more vulnerable to malware and viruses.
