Android Has Up To 47 Times More Malware Infections Than iOS

Apple has released a report that shows how much more secure iOS is than Android.

According to a 28-page security report, Apple claims that an Android device has between 15 and 47 times more malware infections than iOS. As per Apple, the ability of Android devices to install third-party applications opens the door to download all kinds of malicious software, where the App Store remain the only app store for iPhones.

The fact is that criminals can create fake versions of Google Play, which outwardly hardly differ from the original. And with the help of trojans to get access to the user’s device. The most common types of malware have been adware, ransomware, spyware, and banking Trojans.

Apple’s new security report also mentions recent Android Trojans such as Banker.BR, TeaBot and BlackRock, the latter of which steals the credentials of 450 online services and impersonates the popular Clubhouse app.

Apple indicate that forcing the company to open the doors to this type of facility would make the iPhone less secure and reliable for users.
