    RE: How to Remove a Virus from a Smartphone

    Wouldn't just remove the malicious app. , remove the actual infection?
    Why is need it to restore to default settings?

    Hi Jack,

    Yes, removing the malicious app should work, but most users won't know which app is malicious.

    RE: How to Remove a Virus from a Smartphone

    I haven't dived into the smartphone area, so I don't know much, but would downloading Apps from their official marketplace be slightly safer than say an unknown site?

    What about advice for Rooted smartphones?

    I'll sure be looking at this when I upgrade. :D

    On some cases when an Antivirus fails to removed a threat, they advised to manual disinfection by uninstall the malicious app.
