How to protect yourself from malware on your Android devices
With the advent of Android 6.0 Marshmallow, many Android devices now feature a built-in security solution called a “sandbox”.
This is a small set of settings, called “security profiles”, that protect users from attacks that may come from malicious apps and malicious websites.
But many users don’t realise that they can easily enable the sandbox and allow apps to access private data.
This article explores the ins and outs of sandboxing, including what is known as the “sandboxing feature” and how to enable it.
How do I enable sandboxing?
In most cases, you’ll want to enable the “security profile” in your Android device’s settings, but if you’re using an Android 6 update or newer, you can enable the feature by following these simple steps: Find the Security Profiles option.
Scroll down to “Settings”.
Under “Security Profiles”, you’ll find “Security profiles”.
Under the “Security Profile” section, tap the “Enable” button.
Click “Save” when finished.
