I brought a new smartphone, upgrading from the ancient Samsung Galaxy Ace, to LG G5. How can I secure my phone from malicious networks and software ? I am not rooting the phone, and sticking with the Google app store.

Install Malwarebytes. Get a good paid or free VPN. Encrypt your phone with the built-in encryption tool in Android.

Agree but would recommend going for a paid vpn rather than a free one.
