    So I had a question about downloading app updates and downloading apps on the google play store when connected to public wifi. Can you get malware or viruses this way? I'm asking because when I was setting up my new phone at the att store I used there wifi to downloaded some app updates (google maps and Google play services updates) and apps. I'm just wondering if there's any danger in doing so.

    Risk is slim to nil. Many of the layers of security in app installation are post download.

    Even if the phone was fresh out of the box?

    I've just heard it's not good to download stuff off public wifi

    It is true that some public wifi's can be fake. Does not happen alot. But it is true that you should always check if it is an official connection.
