By Steve Kovach/The Wall Street,The Associated PressWhen you use an app that’s installed on your Android phone or tablet, it could be a malicious application that’s running on your device.
That’s because Android apps are often installed by default and they typically include Java code.
That code can make it easy for a malicious app to steal or compromise your data.
To be sure, a malicious program might install itself on your phone.
But you can still take steps to prevent it.
Here are five steps to take if you suspect your Android is infected with Java:1.
Check your Android’s battery.
You may have noticed that the battery icon in the Android OS is red and it’s missing a battery icon.
The battery icon usually indicates a battery that’s full.2.
Open your Android app’s settings and check to make sure the battery is low.
If the battery meter doesn’t display the battery low indicator, the battery should be low.3.
Open an app’s app drawer.
If your battery is high, open an app drawer that shows the battery level.
If you see a battery meter, check to see if it’s full or if the battery has dropped below a certain percentage.4.
Remove any apps that are running on the phone or are installed by itself.
You can check to ensure that the apps aren’t running by checking the apps that have been installed.
If you see an app running that you suspect is malicious, remove it.5.
Check to make certain your phone’s memory is backed up.
The more information you can check on, the more likely you are to find malicious apps.
