It is the request of the security firm Lookout, which states that 6.5 percent of free apps in the Google game on the market contain adware.

Adware has become a little something about regarding Android, a new study from security firm Lookout discovered.
According to the security company, over the last year, more than 1 million U.S. Android users download involuntary or adware. What's worse, 6.5 percent of free applications available on the Google Market now has game advertising of any kind.
Adware is not exactly the easiest subject to define because there is a gray area between what is the practice of advertising and what is not. But Lookout says there are some key features that are seemingly innocuous ads in adware:

    The application that displays advertisements "outside the normal experience;
    The ad "unusual cultures personally identifiable information, or
    The ad "makes unexpected, as a response to clicks on ads.
Adware has long been a concern for computer users. But with the use of cloud mobile devices, advertisers - and creators of adware - focus on Android. Worse, Juniper Networks report released earlier this week shows that mobile malware has increased 614 percent in the past year, and 92 percent of all detected threats running on Google's operating system.

Lookout says that 26 percent of Google Play free personalization contain adware applications. As for games, 9 percent were free of adware programs. Interestingly, social applications are less likely to contain adware, Lookout find with only 2 percent of adware packaging programs.

While most mobile ads are A-OK, the industry grows, it must protect the privacy of the user and an excellent user experience. "
