For the first time, Google has issued its own analytical report on security on Android. Data were collected daily throughout 2014 and analyzed by the Android platform security team. Less than 1% of devices running Google's operating system had malicious applications installed during the time period examined. The even smaller number when we look at the amount of apps installed inside the Play Store: 0.15%.
Google confirms that less than 1% of Android devices have some kind of app that poses a danger to the user. This analysis is even more significant when we observe that only 0.15% of threats left the Play Store. The overall rate of rates measuring infected Android devices decreased by 50% between the first and fourth quarter of 2014.
And that, that open-ended, insecure mangled story of the past, don't you think?
