Substantial improvements to the security of Android over the past few years have brought it to a level where it is now being considered to provide security comparable to iPhones.
Todays release of #Android10
introduces more security improvements https://security.googleblog.com/2019/05/queue-hardening-enhancements.html
Theres also many Privacy improvements https://developer.android.com/about/versions/10/privacy
Its becoming increasingly clear that an #AOSP
based operating system, without Google Play Services can offer great privacy and security. #GrapheneOS
all provide verified boot, which helps guard against persistent compromise. #LineageOS
dont maintain this security feature, but are long lived and well known AOSP based operating systems.
Another measure that can be taken is not using app stores where malware is present #fdroid
is widely recognised by researchers as being free of malware.
The improvements to Android, which has long been considered to have inferior security,, are being demonstrated by companies paying more for exploit chains on #Android
than those for #iOS
