Just got my Acer a500 tablet,which is wifi only. Whenever I go to a website which requires secure log in ( bank,mobile phone account etc) it says something like no secure network can be opened,and I can't access my accounts. I'm connected to my home wifi which is secured with a password.
My friend said there is a security issue with android devices,and when online, they are vulnerable. And can easily be hacked or something. I wasn,'t really listening to him,as he is known for lying about things like this.
I don't have the same issue when accessing these websites via wireless on my samsung galaxy s which is why I find it strange.

Anyone know a way around this? And is android vulnerable? I read the bbc article about the security issues,but find it a bit'of a scaremonger.
 
to mods..don't move this,it's a general android question not specific to my tablet!!
