Beware of copycat apps

It’s all too easy to accidentally install a malicious app on your phone. This could be because an app mimics a legitimate one; for example, if you want the Amazon Alexa app, make sure it’s the official software by Amazon by checking the source and reading the user reviews. Also, be wary of apps that are offered for free, as they may contain malware or viruses. When downloading an app, always check the app’s reviews and check the permissions it requests before installation. Also, make certain it’s from a trusted source such as the official app store for your mobile operating system.
