    Welcome. If you download apps from 3rd party sources (pirated apps) or visit shady sites and download files then yes, you stand a high risk of getting a virus. Stick with known app stores (Google, Amazon, App Brain) and you'll be fine.

    These types of forums are great for keeping abreast of what's safe and what's not. Usually when threats arise there will be posts about it or a thread in the news section

    Why do you recommend an AV? Just looking to get others opinions.
