A user downloads a widget onto his Android phone but is puzzled to see that when the widget is touched an app is launched. What is a possible cause?

  • The user has downloaded a virus.
  • The widget is corrupt.
  • The security settings of the Android OS have been compromised.
  • The widget is associated with the app and this is the normal behavior.
    Explanation:

    Widgets are programs that when installed associate with the application they were built for. This will cause the application to launch when the widget icon is touched on the touchscreen of the Android device.
