    Hi there. I'm new to this forum so sorry if this is the wrong place or has been already asked.

    I regularly get spam emails but usually can identify them straight away but to make sure I always hover over the links when viewing them in my desktop browser (chrome). This is to see if the link is actually embedded with another link.

    In Android's stock email, there appears to be no way to identify if the link is embedded with another link. Is there a way to do this or would I require another email app?

    Thanks
    Peter

    Ya its hard to tell in android if you use Gmail i recommend the Gmail app . but unlike PC if you press the link and open it in a browser like chrome on android there is very low risk of malware infecting you and chrome has could detection also if you install the free norton mobile security app it also protects chrome and can stop malware likes from opening so if you click it and its dangerous Norton will say so and allow you to go back with out infection. hope that helps some.
