PDF scanner app caught sneaking malware onto phones

The Take AwayI’m a fan of pdf scanning on smartphones – I think that it’s a great use of the device. What I’m not a fan of is no-name App developers worming their way into my phone! So, I recommend using tried and true apps from trusted names. The 2 Apps I recommend are Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive. Both allow you to scan and crop documents, receipts, business cards, photos, or whatever directly into your cloud storage account. In Google Drive, simply hit the + button and select Scan and from OneDrive, tap the Lens icon in the bottom right hand corner. That’s it – scan away and best of all, it’s free! Stay safe out there. -A
