Mobiles are considered a necessity for us in today’s world. Mobiles being an integral part of our daily routine & work, help us in our daily routine work while connecting us to the outside world. Approximately 70% of the people intend to store vital information on their mobiles that include their personal data, bank credentials & other vital information which can cause harm if it is acquired by hackers. We generally don’t concern about the security of our mobile devices & that lead to harm us at some point of time.

Mobile Security Threats that Can Harm You

Find below a list of such mobile threats that may harm you at any instant of time-

Network Spoofing: Where hackers set up fake access points (connections that look like Wi-Fi networks but are actually traps) in high-traffic public locations such as coffee shops, libraries and airports. They ask you to fill a form to access free wifi which in turn gives them an access to your data.

Password or data Leakage: Most of the users use passwords for different apps on their devices. These are easily detectable & make the mobile apps vulnerable to the hackers. Mobile apps are often the cause of unintentional data leakage.

Unsecured Wi-Fi Connections: When you connect your mobile device over an unsecure Wi-Fi network, it makes your data vulnerable and there occur chances to get attacked by hackers. According to a research, three British politicians who agreed to be part of a free wireless security experiment were easily hacked by technology experts and had their social media, PayPal and even VoIP conversations compromised. To be safe, avoid using free Wi-Fi on your mobile device, and never use it to access confidential or personal services, like banking or credit card information.

Phishing & Malwares: Malwares are bugs which can harm the security of your mobile device badly. These malwares makes your data open to the hackers. Never click on unfamiliar email links. Always enter URLs manually to be as safe as possible.

Security Software: People generally choose security software for their mobiles that claims to protect the device against people who are ready to infect the device with various malwares. People avoid using security applications to prevent the device from slowing down.

Outdated Operating Systems & Applications: Keep updating your device’s operating system on a regular basis. An outdated operating system of the mobile device can expose it to hackers. Not updating your mobile’s application also void the security.
