Malware attacks are most commonly used in conjunction with Android attacks and thus cause critical issues.

There are some techniques that an Android user might try for a more user-friendly experience. Also, there are some helpful tips for preventing some of the issues mentioned above.

Remedying Android System Crashes

The Android operating system caches memory of frequently used applications in temporary memory. This allows users to launch frequently used applications, services, and widgets with little loading time. However, as the temporary cache fills the allotted memory, applications will suffer due to slow response times, applications closing unexpectedly or other system errors. To remedy this issue, the user may clear the cache by navigating to the embedded Android Application Manager. Once there, the user will see a list of applications that are currently in process. The individual may select the particular application and cancel the process to free available memory. Doing this regularly will ensure a hitch-free experience.

Prevent Android Malware Attacks

To prevent Malware attacks on an Android device, the user may install a reputable third-party Malware software on their device. Upon installation of the software, the user will be given the option to perform an immediate scan to quarantine and delete any Malware found. The software will also remain active on the user’s Android phone, so future Malware viruses will be detected and deleted before being installed into the device.
