Furthermore, downloads from sources outside the Google Play Store should be avoided as far as possible, as sources of danger often lurk here. However, as the above example shows, you are not always 100 percent sure there either. That is why it is worthwhile to take a look at the ratings and comments in the Play Store before downloading apps from lesser-known developers – these often provide information as to whether a download can have undesirable consequences.
Furthermore, links received in Messenger should always be checked more closely before clicking on them – even if they come from users from their own contact list. If the address seems dubious, you’d better avoid it. Once you’ve clicked, you should at least think twice about downloading software. A check of the URL at which the download is offered often reveals whether it is legitimate.
