Millions Of Android Phones At Risk For Heartbleed

April 15, 2014, 4:10 PM by Angela Kennecke

Millions Of Android Phones At Risk For Heartbleed

If you've got an Android phone, your device could be susceptible to the Heartbleed security problem. Google now says that smartphones and tablets running on a certain version of Android were affected by Heartbleed and your login information could be at risk.  The version of Android 4.1.1 was released in 2012 and is most likely running on older smartphones.

Google estimates that 34 percent of Android devices use a version of the software and that adds up to millions of devices.   You should check your device to see if it's among them.  Go to the Settings menu of your phone and go to the "About Phone" section to find out what version of Android you're running and if there are any updates available. 

You can also download a free Android app called Heartbleed Detector that will tell you if your device is vulnerable to Heartbleed.
