The internet has become significantly important in everyday life. Devices are at a greater risk of infection with different kinds of malware because of the increased use of the internet. Malware can come from different sources such as social media websites, e-mail spam, and websites that have unauthorized codes. Malware infections result in low performance and damage of the device.
Malware is a software that loads on mobile devices through the internet or while downloading unauthorized applications. It spreads from one device to another in different ways such as through networks, the internet, and e-mails. Mobile anti-malware protects mobile devices from malware, data theft, unauthorized access, viruses, spyware, hacker attacks, and online identity theft.
