Ios more sure then Android
Yes this is what most discussion topic about Android and iOS. One ( Android ) is easy to use and second is hard to use ( iOs ) but when it comes to secure so stopping everything to be used is not solution as what ios prefer. I use rooted Android . I am using this Android TV Box https://www.entertainmentbox.com/product/ebox-t8-v-tv-box-2017-internet-streaming-box-version-5/ which is fully rooted with Android firmware and same allowed me to use anything available without ads issue etc. But the risk of virus etc is there is anything you try for which you are not sure can infect system file and this issue is not on ios platform as you cannot do anything lol.
