In the ecosystem of devices running Google’s mobile operating system, “Certified Android Device” is the new buzzword introduced by the company.

As an effort to build users’ trust on the manufacturers and their Android devices, the certification assures that the Android devices they’re purchasing are checked for compatibility and doesn’t include anything malicious.

Google says they make sure that Android phones and tablets from their certified device partners stick to Android’s security and permissions models. By running hundreds of tests, the company tries to eliminate the possibility of the devices carrying malware or some adulterated version of pre-installed Google apps.
