How Users Can Protect Themselves From Mobile Malware

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.

Another way users can protect themselves is by being cautious with applications requesting updates after installation.

Some of the capabilities of mobile malware include stealing credentials, recording telephone, and non-telephone conversations, recording audio and video directly from the device, wiping the phone’s data, and intercepting any information on the phone.
