Due to its proprietary on developing its applications, iPhone is the safest and secured phone in the planet. It is not just everybody can build any applications for the phone. Kudos to Apple regardless any criticisms and weakness and thanks to Apple management to protect all their customers.

Androids is the most unsecured devices and vulnerable for hacking. Anyone who cares not to be hacked will not pick android devices. All androids applications are open for anyone including hackers to build.

While I agree that iOS Appstore is more secure than the Google Play store - you're probably going to end up getting flak for that statement even here on Macrumors.

Google has a lot of intelligent people working for them (I've met several in person). I also agree that a part of the burden of security rests on the user as well. People have to be educated, skilled enough to drive a car and it's not the car's fault if they get into an accident.

But yeah, I'd consider iOS more safe than an Android device. That said, the US Army allows both iPhone and Android phones now - though the way they implement "security" - they're almost useless to even the owners.

Proprietary makes it more vulnerable to hacking. That's not a positive. It's a massive negative. IPhone security has been through good internal design, walled garden application loading, and luck.

Who buys phone based on "security" concerns? lmao

I buy iPhones for the ecosystem, the ease of use, the design.. and I believe most others too

Very few people buy on security concerns. I, however, would NOT buy certain Android phones specifically because they are build to be surveillance devices (I'm talking the absurdly inexpensive Chinese phones).

I, for one, would love to see some sources on this, otherwise it is nothing but hearsay.

I agree that they are, at this time, more seemigly more secure but I never had an issue with any of my Andriod devices either. So, if you have some proof to backup your statement please post it or this should simply be moved to Wasteland.

This is the main reason I have apple products, I feel like I don't have to worry about a hack, I remember I used to use Limewire I think it was called and I had to bring it to my buddy to fix like every week. lol

Your anecdotal evidence of "never having an issue" does not refute the fact that worldwide Android is a massive security threat given the nefarious software millions of units have shipped with (mostly from China) and the tens of millions of devices that will never receive security updates for exploits being actively used today.

Again, I am not saying that the iPhone isn't safer. What I am saying is that if you are going to come on the site and post something, you should back it with sources as you did. I have an iPhone and don't really care, but the blanket statements above by the OP need to have some sources backing his claim.

Oh no I agree, the OP reads like someone who doesn't know what he's talking about.

Do you have evidence for this, other than the cheap chinese phones? A lot of assertions without any statistics or studies to back it up with.

I see this both in the Apple and Microsoft forums. The Surface Guys say how much more Surface products are more reliable or better without any numbers or stats to back it up with. Same with the Mac books, claiming it never has problems or very few defects compared to Windows laptops without a shred of evidence to back it up. For some people astrology and homeopathy work well and have cured their diseases and cancer :rolleyes:

I wouldn't follow the blind like the first couple of posts. Do your own research, follow professional security blogs, find out what Google Project Zero and VirusTotal are and if there are Apple equivalents, why jailbreak is common on iOS but rare on Android, the biggest and most embarrassing security breach The Fappening, etc.

"The Fappening" is the biggest security breach? And didn't even involve an OS exploit or anything like that. Yup, actually reading up and doing research is certainly the way to go.

Who needs jailbreak in android?...
Those who want:
  • Install a custom ROM;
  • Remove preinstalled crapware;
  • Install apps for rooted device;
  • Enjoy the latest OS before updating officially;
  • Remove all of the annoying ads in the apps;
  • Improve battery life;
  • Get a better experience of the phone/tablet.

P.S.: This is the safest and secured phone:
