So I've just made the switch to android. Is there anything I should do as far as protection. I've been apple scum since I've had a smartphone. Don't know if there's anything huge I'm missing.

Really, faggot? Nobody fucking cares, go to the cancerous smartphone general

make sure your device can run the latest marshmallow version.

and install gentoo you shitposting faggot

If you're using official firmware, you probably won't get security updates for very long (2 years at most), and they'll be delayed as fuck. if you flash custom firmware, you might get updates faster and for a few more years, but there will be bugs/issues with the custom firmware anyway. And you void your warantee by doing so.

Basically, you're fucked either way. If you want mobile device security, get an Apple or Microsoft phone. Their security situation isn't completely back-asswards fucked.

The most lightweight antivirus I can suggest is Bitdefender. It runs in the background, scans newly installed apps and generally stays out of your way.

I don't use Android but I've heard Avast Mobile is one of the best antimalware/antivirus apps for android.

Avast constantly nags you for it's other apps with giant in your face pop-ups and it has some bug where scanning notifications pop up over and over and never go away. It might be functionally good, but overall too much of a pain to deal with. Plus there are better non-root firewall solutions (local VPNs)

uhh
im using official firmware and get updates like every 2 weeks
>>

Installing antivirus is fucking retarded, but you'd have to be a special kind of retard to install one on your phone.

Placebo if you used trusted application repositories, and a waste of resources.

Does anyone know how to restore the appearance/behaviour of the recent apps switcher in 5.x to how it looked in 4.4.x, or if it's even possible? I worked out how to change the main apps menu back to the old style, but not the recent app switcher...
