About the Advantages of Android Tablets and Security PDF Print E-mail

There were a lot of skeptics about the future of tablet computers before they were introduced. Today however, there is no longer any doubt as to the usefulness and the popularity of those devices and how it has created a new niche in the market. People are still using desktops and laptops, but there are some functions where tablets can beat those two hands down.

Browsing is a lot more fun when you are using a tablet for it. Watching videos is also a lot better with a tablet. That's why a lot of people prefer to have their tablets around.

The Android Advantage- Though Android tablets were not the first ones in the market, they are moving in to claim a significant share of it. What is the advantage of Android tablets over that of the iPad?

The main advantage of course is the fact is that there is not just a single model or manufacturer of Android tablets. There are so many device makers that are using this OS and so consumers are presented with so many choices.

Consumers can pick from tablets with small screens to ones that can double as laptops by being attached to a keyboard base. The options are expanding with each month. Compare that with the main competition which can only offer upgrades of the same device.

Android Tablet and Security- One of the major concerns when it comes to using the Internet is security. It does not matter what sort of device is used but the important thing is that security should be prioritized at all times. This is true when it comes to Android tablets as well.

The first thing to understand about Android tablets and security is the thing called permissions. When you download an app you are initially given permissions that basically says that you allow the app to make changes on your device. Keep in mind that the only way that permission can be revoked is to remove the app by uninstalling it.

Antivirus Apps- There are antivirus apps now for Android devices that can be downloaded and installed on your devices. The problem is that their effectiveness is still an open question. Can they really work in helping to prevent malicious software from getting into your device?

The consensus is that these apps do work for keeping your device safe. So it is a good idea to have them downloaded and installed on your tablet to help in keeping it protected from viruses.

Treating it Like a Laptop- The best practice is to treat your tablet like a laptop. Take the same precautions that you use when using your laptop computer when using a tablet.

A tablet usually connects to the Internet through a Wi-Fi connection and so there are certain risks that you must be aware of when using that way of connecting to the Internet.

These are just some of the things that you can keep in mind when it comes to keeping your Android tablet safe and secure.
