    Yes, of course it is. Added security of fingerprint lock too. [e]1f601[/e]
    Normal caveat is to avoid banking transactions using public WiFi and some Banking apps and Android Pay won't work if your device is rooted.

    Obviously you don't understand Engineering mode at all. Someone would need to have your phone in hand to use it, then all they could do is root your phone and use root to read whatever files your bank may have stored on your device.

    First, this doesn't compare the attack surface of vulnerabilities at all. It only addresses updates. There is much less of a need for updates.

    The security model of Android is vastly different from the other OS's given. First, it's a Linux kernel. Second, apps are each given a user ID and different apps can not read each other's data. Third, Android is written mostly in Java, not C, so isn't as vulnerable to buffer overflow attacks, stack smashing attacks, and the like.

    Under Windows, specially crafted data can attack the libraries in the browser and gain the ability to run code. This then lets a remote user run as if they were the browser. Now, the browser can read whatever files it wants, so you have a serious breach.

    In Android, vulnerabilities don't lead to remote execution. The chances of getting a remote exploit that let's a remote attacker inject code into the browser is very slim. Then, if by some chance it happens, the browser can't read the files stored by your banking app because they are under different user ID's.

    Android is MUCH safer than desktop OSs

    Engineering mode is not a remote exploit. Someone would need access to your phone first. You'd have to unlock it for them and let them have it awhile.

    as far as I know, banking apps don't save any information on the phone. they get deleted as soon as user logs out.

    First, thank you for your clarification. second, everyone will not know everything. So when people dont understand something it is nothing wrong in asking others. Criticizing them is absolutely not required. So next time if you have a chance, just educate dont comment on their ignorance. Anyway thanks for your time..

    i would suggest you to write an article online. So people like me can read a man's article and ignore those written by children

    Very risky. Send me your account details and logins etc, I will then make them secure for you.
