    hey

    i recently purchased a blackview a60 pro as a short term solution until my contract is up and i have read about security issues on cheaper devices.

    does anyone know if blackview phones are safe for internet banking/facebook etc?

    i havent notice any bloatware apps except one called "wireless update" which i am hearing is possible malware.

    anyone have any advice?

    cheers

    mikedt 你好

    I know Blackview, a budget cheapo Chinese manufacturer, with offices in Hong Kong, that only sells online.

    If their phones are secure, safe, reliable or not? No idea.

    Good luck.

    ocnbrze DON'T PANIC!!!!!!!!!

    most phones regardless should be safe to a certain degree. just use common sense when banking. do not do it over public wifi. only download and install apps from a reputable source such as google play. always before installing check what permissions that app will ask for. stay away from certain websites.

    do these common sense things and you should be fine.

    Thanks for the replies, I will definitely use the advice.

    Blackview sell alot on amazon so I guess they must be OK overall, just worry about malware recording user input whilst signing into legitimate apps like Facebook etc. I've installed avast and malwarebytes.

    guess any manufacturer could have this problem...
