I have questions
I recently purchased an Amazon Fire 7, even though I admit I am totally ignorant on the subject (It was just too cheap to pass up). I have managed to navigate around the device, and download apps, connect to my e:mail account and the like, but I am wondering about the security of this tablet. On my PC's, I routinely turn on my firewall and set up spyware and virus protection. Is this not the case with tablets? I don't have a smartphone and I'm not familiar with the operating system of this device. How secure are they? Are there steps I should be taking to protect my information? I would appreciate any and all advice. Thanks.

Not sure how many of these you have already seen:
There are a few issues that might be a concern, depending on what you are doing with it. The Silk browser may not be the best. You may want to use something else to access your e-mail. You should be able to encrypt the device though.

Seems as though many of the articles I have come across caution against using non-Amazon apps, including a different browser, claiming their use may cause more problems than they're worth.. I did find an AVG app and a the Malwarebytes anti-spyware app (which used up 13% of my batteries life when I first ran it)...Also ran across this website and wonder what you might think of it.

That article is now fairly old, and it also assumes that you never do anything with your device that could expose you to malware - not a reasonable assumption these days.
