Over 50 percent of Android-based smartphone and tablet owners do not use any security software to protect their devices against cyber-threats, according to Kaspersky Lab.

This is in despite of the well-documented notion that Android has long been the most popular platform purchased by consumers and used by cybercriminals to steal from them.

Even though a high number of participants said they do not use security protection on their mobile devices, the results showed that 40 percent of smartphone and 42 percent of Android tablet owners participating in the survey stated that they have installed a security solution on their devices and are now using it.
