Protection of Personal Info & programs for smartphone


Yesterday, my computer has been infected with malware. My cell phone was connected to same wifi, so I was wondering if it might also be infected, what should I do and if there are any applications or way to know it is infected or not.

Note: I have changed all my passwords since butI would like to know if there is more I could do.


Thanks for time !

No, unless you purposefully installed some malware-infected application not from AppWorld.
