Hackers could send malware to you through your network, via email or SMS, or install apps from the Google Play Store with dangerous permissions. Once you have the top anti-malware software installed your device will be quite secure. As with any security tool you should monitor it to ensure it is safe from any future threats.
Thankfully there are several good Android antivirus scanner options available there to protect your phone from hackers and malware. Norton for instance, is an excellent choice, achieving full marks in tests by independent labs and offering an impressive set of security features, including a privacy score on all apps, a password manager, and an integrated Wi-Fi scanner.
