Amazon's app store compromises Android security

It's dangerous to go alone outside Google's protective walled garden, but it's the price you pay for free software.
Ask almost any security expert, and they'll tell you switching on "unknown sources" on your Android phone or tablet is one of the worst things you can do for device security.

IDG Contributor Network: We're all responsible for combating fake news
18 April 2017, 8:11 pm



I spoke to a 5th grade class about identity theft the other day. I quickly discovered that these kids were struggling with EXACTLY the same problems most of us struggle with in our workplace and our personal lives. They were swimming in a sea of dubious information, not able to tell what was real and what was not, or if they were being scammed or by whom.

“Sometimes I’m gaming,” said one kid, “and someone asks ‘What’s your real name?’ and I’m like, why does he need to know?”

“I was on this chat board, and I could just tell this person was totally fake, but I didn’t know what to do,” said another kid.

The truth is, every day, in every possible way, we get bombarded with fake information. It doesn’t matter how old we are, how smart we are, whether we’re at home or at work. The world is full of falsity, whether it’s phishing, fake news or some weirdo trying to learn more about us when we’re playing a video game.
