Today we will not only explain you about the malware but we will also tell you that how to protect your device from this malware.

What is HummingBad?
HummingBad is a type of malware which will be installed to your android device automatically if you visit some type of sites.It will not be shown in your installed apps.Once it is installed, it will automatically start downloading other applications for the reason of advertising them.

Majorly this malware has affected 3 countries mainly China, India and U.S. This malware has been installed over billions of devices which include smartphones and tablets and it is continuously installing new apps at a rate of approx  50000 apps per day.

How to protect your android device?

It is very important to control your device because if it becomes uncontrolled then many applications will be automatically installed to your device which will surely be not liked by you.

1-Install an Anti-virus app- You should install an anti-virus app on your device.It will surely not allow your device to install HummingBad.Or may be it will warn you before installing the malware but if you will not have an anti-virus app then your device will never warn you.

2-Don't root your device- This will be the point which will be ignored by the android lovers because most of the time we need to root our device for some reason or other.But if your device is rooted then,this malware will silently install different applications on your device without even asking you and with the help of these apps it will gain access to your rooted device and can cause different problems.

3-Turn off "Unknown sources" option- You should always switch off this option in your settings.Because this is the option whish is responsible for the installation of third-party apps.If this option will be switched off then it will always ask you for installing every single app.

4- Update/Upgrade your android phone- You should always check for the updates of your android device.Most of you must be thinking that it will not effect much but let me tell you that it effects the most. Newer updates are full of new techniques which always are to protect your device from the malwares. So you must do that.
