Online security agency Palo Alto Networks has said it had discovered a "widespread vulnerability in Google’s Android OS", which is estimated to impact almost 50% of current Android users. Writing on the official blog, senior security engineer Zhi Xu has said they had dubbed the vulnerability as “Android Installer Hijacking.”
Google has added a feature to Android that could keep your instrument safe from misuse. It has released a device security feature called 'On-body' detection. This uses the smartphone's accelerometer to understand if the phone is in a user's hand or in the pocket. If the feature detects that your phone is not in one of those 2 places, it will automatically lock.
