One of the biggest security threats to smartphones is the issue of malware. The study carried out a survey on malware detection techniques towards identifying gaps, and to provide the basis for improving and effective measure for unknown android malware. The results showed that machine learning is a more promising approach with higher detection accuracy. Upcoming researchers should look into deep learning approach with the use of a large dataset in order to achieve a better accuracy.
