Mobile phones opened the world to our homes, but their security is not in our hands. We panic when we can’t find our mobile around for a few minutes, let alone losing it forever. Keeping mobile secure is difficult not only when it’s stolen but also during day to day use.
Our mobiles are always at the risk of hacking as long as they are connected to any network. This could pose a threat to confidential business information, banking credentials and even the pictures of dear ones.
How hard is keeping mobile secure and clean? Where to download safe applications? How can we avoid malware downloads that control our cameras and listening devices?
