Security in Android apps

I am Conrad

I was wondering, if anybody would be able to hack accounts on Android apps.
I mean for example we are logged on ebay or Facebook app, and we simply quit to home screen, without logging out, and also disconnect from network and again turn on network.
-To the point, Is it technically possible if anybody would hack our session, when we logged?
Of course we're using WiFi in home with WPA2, not public hotspot.

- How does situation look like with bank apps? Is it any risk when I immediately leave the app without logging out,
-But in web browser on android, on Facebook, is it possible to take over session?

-I 've found VPN app "Zenmate" on Google Play is that proper VPN? , is it worth to use it? or that is a piece of junk?

Ekiga - SIP and H.323 Voice over IP and Videoconferencing for UN*X
ekiga [-d level] [-c URL]
Ekiga is a SIP and H.323 VoIP, IP Telephony and Video Conferencing application which complies to the SIP and H.323 protocols. It can con- nect to a variety of other SIP and H323 applications including specific hardware. Ekiga can work with or without a webcam, and is able to create pure audio communications or traditional audio+video communications. Ekiga was formerly known as GnomeMeeting. Ekiga has been designed for the GNOME desktop and therefore uses gconfd-2(1) for storing its userdata. It offers to configure almost every option from within the GUI. Command-line options include -d to turn on debugging during calls. -c to call another URL.
-d level turn on debugging (on the console), level should be between 1 and 4. -c URL Calls the given URL. Ekiga can be running or not when invoking that option. SIP, H.323 and CALLTO URLs are supported.
/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults/apps/ekiga/ The system wide configuration file. See gconf-config(1) for further details on gconf. (The actual place can differ depending on your system's configuration) ~/.gconf/apps/ekiga Per user configuration file. See gconf-config(1) for further details.
On startup Ekiga reads the system-wide gconf schemas (like every other GNOME2 app should do) from /etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults/apps. Every modification of the gconf keys using the GUI, gconftool or gconf-editor is reflected in real-time by Ekiga.
More documentation is available in the manual available through Ekiga's Help menu. There is also a FAQ at:
