    Hi,
    Android devices are more secure and are not hacked frequently the devices can be protected either by use of a Secure connections that is connecting to a Secure network instead of a open network where there are more probability of hacking. Also devices can be made to use internet only when necessary and can avoided when not necessary. Also antivirus applications such as "Avast" and "NetQin" can be used in order to protect the device from antivirus and unwanted viruses and hacking of Ip address of the phone in order to protect it from being hacked. Likewise many things can be done in order for the device not to be hacked.
    Hope this Helps.
