About Smart Phone Security
Smart phones are the new standard in mobile communication. However, smart phones aren’t just a communication tool. Smart phones are also an information tool. With a smart phone, users have access to personal and work e-mail, social networking sites and can choose between thousands of apps to download. While this gives smart phone users a decided advantage in terms of access to information and flow of communication, it also means that smart phones are vulnerable to hacking and breaches of security. That’s because users tend to think of the smart phone as “a phone” in terms of security, when it really should be thought of as a personal computer or laptop in terms of security issues.
