Android users are often overwhelmed by security issues arising in the apps they use. Although malware analysis tools exist, they are challenging to adopt for average users. To avoid burdening mobile devices with complex and computationally expensive malware tools, we propose a hybrid approach that combines static and dynamic analyses, and distributes the analysis mainly on another device than the phone. We first review the Android architecture and several of the key security issues it faces, and we summarize existing approaches to malware detection. We conclude with a research plan to explore and develop a more user-friendly approach to malware detection for ordinary users.
