#5 Dropped calls and disruptions



Dropped calls or strange disruptions may reveal the existence of malware interruption. There might be many other factors that disrupt calls as well. Location and weather are some of them. 



It is however suggested that you narrow down variables and notice if the problem is consistent, before assuming whether it is a malware.



What’s next?



If you are seeing all or some of these symptoms, it time you download security software. There are many security suites for Android that will actually scan apps as they are downloaded. App reputation services also help you out to know whether the app is safe or not. Always keep a track of weird links and emails with attachments and SMS spam.



Most malware can be cleaned up in seconds and affected user files can be restored from a backup of your handset.
