Most droids are not the ones you are looking for if you value security
Nexus devices are, unsurprisingly, the most secure Androids, says security outfit Duo.
The devices are regarded as Google's flagship Android device on account of its operating system running the stock Android open source project ASOP .
Android phones from other manufacturers nearly always add custom modifications and are slow to update AOSP updates, when mobe-makers bother to do so.
Duo Labs security intern Olabode Anise @justsayo says in analysis that Nexus users are the most secure on account of the rapid provision and application of updates.
"Google s publicity around the stronger security model of Nexus phones, combined with the fast update rollout, has clearly resulted in safer users," Anise says.
