Mountain View, California: The majority of Android smartphone and tablet users do not need to install anti-virus and other security apps to protect them, despite dire warnings from security companies selling such products, Google’s head of Android security says.

Adrian Ludwig, the lead engineer for Android security at Google, said there was “a bit of a misperception” in how the company reviewed apps for its Google Play store in comparison with other stores.

He also said those who used security software on their phones would likely get no protection from it.
