    Re: Android application sending unsolicited messages?

    This is an issue many users are facing worldwide. They become aware about this issue only after they have been charged heavily by the operator. This issue arises mainly due to faulty android applications on your phone. SMS Trojans are the most used malicious app for the android phones. These apps sent messages in the background and the user will not come to know about this. These apps are there in plenty and the best way to secure your phone from such an attack is, not to install one on the phone. The user must not download any suspicious application on the android phone.

    Hi there,

    Yes, i guess.

    This can be termed as
    VIRUS in android .

    Many android users are facing this type of problem.

    And , this is due to the installation of non-market apps in the mobiles.

    So, I recommend you to download the apps which are available in the ANDROID MARKET or PLAY STORE.

    As these apps are checked before they are made available in the PLAY STORE.


    Regards!!
