Why Your Mobile is at Risk for a Cyber Attack
We know that that little device that you carry around with you all day long, sleep with, and use the washroom with (we’re all guilty!) – is amazing. However, because of just how amazing it is, it also poses a danger. Users across the world are experiencing malware attacks everyday.
With people using so many different types of applications such as banking applications, shopping applications, social media applications, and more, this is providing all the vital information to criminals around the world. Although so many people think changing their password to these applications regularly will keep them safe, the truth is that this amazing technology poses a major threat to users and their private and confidential information.
The main issue with these “hackers” is that they are experts in their field. These hackers aren’t high school schools, they are well trained professionals in the computer science industry.
Banks across the world are trying to find more and more methods of protecting their customers when using these applications, however, the reality is that with all these customers using these applications, once the hacker gets into the application, they have all the information they require to get access to your banking details, which is obviously terrifying for customers.
Please keep this in mind when you are using your mobile phone to check your bank accounts, pay bills, and transfer money.
