Share post:

Mobile malware is on the rise due to the increased number of users and the ability to access customers’ financial data from mobile devices.

Mobile malware is malicious software specifically designed to target mobile devices.

Therefore, users must be aware of the steps to better protect themselves from such attacks.

To protect themselves, users are advised to install comprehensive security applications on their devices, avoid clicking on links from unverified sources, avoid unknown applications, and check permissions when installing an application.
