In a recent evaluation of the security vulnerabilities of Google's Android versus the Apple iOS,
researchers have found them both to be fairly equal in security against malware and viruses.
There are some differences in protection which were identified in the research findings.
"Android is more vulnerable to harvesting phone call logs and SMS logs and sideloading apps,"
while " iOS is more vulnerable to hostile MDM configuration profiles ".
