Here are a few tips:
• To help prevent spyware, phishing or viruses, use apps
from trusted sites, such as Google Play.
• In Google Play, check the app's ratings and comments
before installing.
• If you doubt the safety of an app, don't install it.
• Apps use up memory, data, battery and processing
power – some more than others. If you're not happy with
how much memory, data, battery or processing power an
app is using, uninstall it.
