Re: Android Malware Warning

Thanks, @Bambino!

I have also wondered why WhatsApp offers me a setting to enable draw video over other apps at times - unrelated, but worrying nevertheless.

Re: Android Malware Warning

Thanks for the information @Bambino. Fortunately my phone has the latest security patch and I've been using WhatsApp with no problems thus far. But it's good to know what's out there and be very careful, at the same time.

Lover of all things Samsung. Currently using Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus 128gb

Re: Android Malware Warning

That's a bit of a shock, so thanks for the heads up @Bambino 

Fortunately I haven't used Whatsapp for a long while now, so hopefully I will be ok.

Thanks for the warning @Bambino.
Even more reason to stick to the official store!

Yet another good reason why mobile operators shouldn't sit on firmware updates for months to 'optimise the customer experience'
