The statistics also show that 4.97 percent of all Vietnamese Android users are fully protected from malware in the first three quarters of 2019.

The number of Internet users in Vietnam is growing significantly, with 58 million Facebook and 62 million Google accounts in August 2019. Thus, it is quite impressive that the Vietnamese government and private units are able to limit the amount of mobile malware attacking Vietnamese users.

Kaspersky asks that Internet users in Vietnam carefully guard themselves from potential cyber attacks via Android devices, especially those for working purposes, by installing necessary software.
