However, this data is often sensitive & personal information; while it is useful to have so much information at your fingertips, it also leaves the user open to mobile security threats.

This means smartphone antivirus protection is now vital. Mobile threats target data such as credit card numbers, Gmail, Facebook, private information & personal media such as images and video… This is especially true if the device is logging in from a new device or location.

Contemporary smartphones are effectively small computers, and are equally vulnerable to malware attacks. The malware aims to exploit weaknesses in mobile communication through wifi networks, text messaging and also through browsers or operating systems.
