The popularity of mobile devices in the market is impressive, but this influx of different products has made it difficult for users to secure their infrastructures from potential data breaches. As the number of exposures and attacks increase, there has been a corresponding rise in security solutions offered by researchers. This article reviews the literature to prevent the cybercrime affecting portable devices especially smartphones running Android OS. Extant researches are analyzed and opportunities for future research are identified. Four research questions have been developed and out of 493 articles retrieved, 33 articles have been selected to be analyzed. From the analysis, we have found that Data leakage resulting from device loss or theft, unintentional disclosure of data and phishing attacks are most common between attackers.

With no doubt, security investigators have stressed the grandness of protecting classified personal data residing in Android portable devices. They have suggested to use the permission-based security model and behavior-based detection method for protecting classified information. In result we found that Android OS can handle and apply the integrated protection model but still there are opportunities for us to improve the security of personal data.
