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.
