Smartphones are only as smart as the people using them. They aren't a replacement for common sense.

@OhSlutButter Well, my aunt has no idea how to vet apps from the Play Store. It's kinda silly that she has to, don't you think?

Not everyone knows to be careful with what they download from the Google Play Store. For some people, it's just a phone.

Then she probably has malware on her PC. Odds are it's running Windows. Is the problem the OS, or is it the user?

Well, the fact that seemingly legitimate apps downloaded from the Google Play Store are installing adware on her device..

Sounds like it's Google's problem and they should fix it.

Much in the same way that for some people a computer is just a terminal to their email, Word, and porn. Still their fault
