    Hi all,

    After playing around with various android stores I've decided to run a Max Mobile Security app.
    To my surprise it has already found 10 threats! It is still running at the moment.
    Has anyone confronted this? Honesty, I have never had this before and occasionally thought that the app was a waste of money....
    Apparently not!!!

    I will update once the scan is over...

    I just did one myself to be on the safe side, luckily no threats were found. Though I only have side loaded a couple android apps.

    I use an app called taskmanager available in BlackBerry World and I've noticed that some of the android apps run headless and reload if they've been killed (esp app stores). Not good...uninstalled them.

    Also be cautious of what you guys are installing because they get permissions to upload your contacts, messages, pics etc..

    I'm leaning toward getting my APKs the old fashioned way through PC via APK Leecher.

    Hopefully soon BlackBerry World adds their own android app store...and Link allows android apps to be backed up.
