Here's your protection: Don't install sketchy apps. That's literally 99% of avoiding issues. Get them from the Play Store or from recognized developers. Read the reviews. Don't install apps that have too many permissions that are not necessary (ie, like a racing game that needs full access to your contacts, accounts, can send SMS, etc). There are no viruses for android, but there can be adware and malware, though those are rare unless you just don't pay attention to what you are doing or installing.
