Best Practice for Android OS
Not published to students
As Android OS is in a huge variety of phones, it also means that the security of Android devices can be compromised more frequently.
To reduce this risk, Google releases updates to Android OS to continually improve your security and keep you and your data safe when using Android.
At the SSSC, to ensure our apps comply with the latest Google Play policies, and to be confident that your data is safe, we continually update our apps and services to meet Google's guidance on making our apps secure.
This means that older Android versions eventually may become incompatible with certain apps we publish.
To keep your own data and phone safe, and to access apps published by the SSSC to the GoogleP Play Store, we recommend that your Android phone is updated occasionally.
Your phone will often prompt you to update it, so we find it is best to allow the device to update itself overnight to keep your OS up to date.
