Before the official release of Android 4.2, we posted rumored news that it would have amazing security features and some of them are true, owners of Android 4.2 devices are very secure now. However new security features aren’t visible, you have to active them yourself.

Google has introduced apps scanning feature that lets you to scan all non-Google Play apps because some apps contains harmful codes, hackers can steal your valuable information regarding your money using these apps. But now you no need worry, Android 4.2 offers a best security scanner, whenever you’ll download any Android app from any market, it will send app information to Google and they’ll tell you the app is harmful or not.

Android 4.2 also comes with app permissions screen, however it already has been used in previous Android versions but Android 4.2 has improved it. Now it provides comprehensive information to protect your Android phone. Another new feature is SMS confirmation that gives you a notification when any app tries to send text without your permissions, now you can allow and deny these kind of activities. However it will not disturb your regular texting.

In recent times we posted about an Android malware that download apps without your permission and waste your money, but Android 4.2 will not allow any app to do that. Thanks Google!
