Is your mobile device sufficiently protected?

Data loss and malware can also affect smartphones and tablets, especially if important security precautions are neglected.

As recent Comparis research has shown, as much as every fourth Swiss smartphone is insufficiently protected, the main reason being that updates provided to eliminate vulnerabilities in mobile device operating systems and apps are neglected and not actually run.

An antivirus app also significantly reduces the risk of malware infecting mobile devices, for instance mobile banking Trojans. Android phones in particular are at serious risk here, in particular if financial transactions such as invoice payments are processed using a tablet or smartphone. Internet fraudsters are currently trying to infiltrate unprotected Android mobile devices with a mobile banking Trojan using faked text messages about a supposed parcel delivery.
