Why do we need to up­date our An­droid OS smart­phones?

HWM (Malaysia) - - THINK -

Not only does your Google Play app store needs to weed out mal­ware reg­u­larly, but the ac­tual An­droid (be­ing open­source) is also a prime tar­get for ma­li­cious cy­ber-vil­lains, so An­droid ac­tively patches that too. You also want to know if your pre­ferred apps aren’t snoop­ing around with your cam­era, mi­cro­phone, and in­ter­nal stor­age. To tackle all that, An­droid has to be on their toes, but their up­date ef­forts will be for naught if no­body up­dates their phones promptly.
