Most of the people consider Apple's iPhone (iOS) much more secure than Android. But Google’s director of security at Android, Adrian Ludwig, wants mobile users to know that the Pixel and the iPhone are security equals.
At the O'Reilly Security Conference in New York City on Tuesday, Ludwig told Motherboard, “for sure,” there’s no doubt that a Google Pixel and an iPhone are pretty much equal when it comes to security.
He added, "Android, will soon be better though".
For now what makes Apple more secure is Apple’s quick patching and strict App Store regulations. While on the other hand, What makes Android unsafe is Installing applications from 3rd party application store (to get apps for free), The same increases the risk of installing pirated and non-secure apps.
