Malware has been a fast growing issue with Android devices as of late. You can find tons of “antivirus” apps in the Android Market and simply traveling into Best Buy you’ll find all kinds of over priced software aimed specifically at naive Android users. Make no qualms about it, I hate malware. There are so many misconceptions regarding viruses, spyware and malware on Android. So, in an effort to further educate our readers, I am happy to bring to you this handy infograph from BullGuard with some easy ways of keeping your device clean, clear and under control. (May have to click the image twice for full view)

I’m sure this is common sense to most of our readers but I can’t tell you how many people I’ve run into that haven’t had the slightest idea on what malware is, or how to contract it. It’s either that or they’re so paranoid with viruses on their Android device, they think someone hacked into their phone and is using their all their data (true story). Did you guys learn anything new? If not, maybe you can show this to some of your n00b friends/family and help educate them.
