Security in Android apps

Hi,
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?

NAME
EMBOSS::GUI::Conf - repository for EMBOSS::GUI site-specific configuration AUTHOR
Luke McCarthy <lukem@gene.pbi.nrc.ca> SYNOPSIS
use EMBOSS::GUI::Conf; $conf = EMBOSS::GUI::Conf->new(); foreach $app ($conf->apps) { ($name, $doc) = @$app; if (!$conf->is_excluded($name)) { ... } } foreach $group ($conf->groups) { $group_name = shift @$group; if (!conf->is_excluded($group_name) { foreach $app (@$group) { ($name, $doc) = @$app; ... } } } DESCRIPTION
EMBOSS::GUI::Conf contains site-specific configuration information for EMBOSS::GUI. Consult the source for a description of the variables that can be set. Public methods are described below: new() Returns a new EMBOSS::GUI::Conf object. This method stores the EMBOSS::GUI::Conf package variables in the object hash, ensures that the specified output path is writeable and adds the EMBOSS binaries to the path. apps() Returns a list of available EMBOSS applications. Each element of the list is a reference to an array containing the name and description of an application. groups() Returns a list of application groups. Each element of the list is a reference to an array containing the name of the group and a list of applications belonging to that group (each application is in turn a reference to an array as described in apps() above.) Note that an individual application can appear in multiple groups. is_excluded($subject) Returns true if the subject is being excluded from public display, false otherwise. $subject is the name of an application or application group as it appears in the output from wossname. databases() Returns a list of available databases. Each element of the list is the name of a database, suitable for use in a USA. matrices() Returns a list of available alignment scoring matrices. Each element of the list is a reference to an array containing the filename of the scoring matrix, suitable for use as the value of a matrix or matrixf argument, and a description of the matrix. codon_usage_tables() Returns a list of available codon usage tables. Each element of the list is a reference to an array containing the filename of the codon usage table, suitable for use as the value of a codon argument, and the name of the species from which it is derived.
