Android Security

I've mentioned before about the lack of privacy there is with cell phones; and, I'm not talking about over hearing other people's personal issues.  (We need an app for that - maybe a speaker so everyone in the restaurant/mall/store can hear - might, maybe, embarrass them enough to stop.  But, I digress.)  I've posted links to how people can use your GPS to track you and your kids.  I've posted how cell phone info can be copied by others in the vicinity trying to get your banking info and credit card info with passwords.  Now, one of the best programs out there for computers has gone into the Android business.  Malware has created Malwarebytes.  And, it is FREE!  It, of course, protects you from Trojans, worms and other malware.  It will now protect your privacy from apps that are pulling your personal info, and Malwarebytes will show you which apps have access to your personal data.  You can download this app at the Google.com store:  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.malwarebytes.antimalware
