Most of us today have smartphones and it has become more of a luxury than these days. Before I get the security issues that smartphones sit, let me so informally define what smartphones are because I know that some of us are not sure what exactly "smartphones" are. Basically, it's any phone with advanced technology. This technology or capability is internet access, email, applications, games and other things you can do with personal computers.
Like your personal computer, your smartphone can also be attacked by viruses, trophies and worms that are usually spread through email attachments. This is one of the most common ways in which your smartphone can be infiltrated. One of the most common services that almost all smartphones provide are called "Bluetooth". Attackers within close agents can access all the information your smartphone has on your bank account information, which may prove to be awful in the future. Everyone we love programs on our smartphones. We download them all the time but what we do not realize is that some programs are not well-tolerated and the attackers face the vulnerability to access your phone. The popular mobile application is well assured like Chase Mobile, Angry Birds, Facebook, Twitter and Groupon. But some of the new and unknown applications may have some security error.
How to secure our smartphone?
Have a password for your phone. Your smartphone comes with built-in security features, but much of us do not allow them. Make sure you have these features enabled. Download some security programs on your phone. Be careful with the applications you download on your phone. For people who work in businesses, the company usually provides you with a cellular phone to communicate with internal and external colleagues and customers. The reason companies do it is because these phones are very well encrypted. The information you communicate is safe and you do not have to worry about the information server. Make sure you do not personally use your phone to share confidential information about your work because there is a possibility that the information will be accessible by an attacker if your phone does not have security features.
