Default How can i know which apps are safe and which aren't?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi, i am somehow worried that if i want to install some apps for my phone that some of them could actually try to send personal information "who knows where and for what" since the phone is constantly online...

I mean the app world does not offer the best apps of the world and searching for games i found one and when i wanted to installed it, it asked if i trusted the app, so i click no and then comes a messages that it wanted to access my telephone contacts... i immediately uninstalled it of course as no normal game needs to have access to that or any other info in my phone...

So, how is a good way to choose apps if there are not many reviews of them yet?

Hope to get helpful answers...

Have a good weekend
