The Silicon Review
Mobile app security describes the amount of protection an application on a mobile device has from malware, phishing, and other harmful hacker crimes. You may also hear the term refer to the technologies that decrease the risks mobile devices are exposed to through their apps. All of the components of a mobile app make them vulnerable to security breaches. For instance, they are considered to be extremely unsecure because they need you to be connected to the internet constantly. In addition, people often try to install apps from sources that aren't trusted or reliable, which pretty much invites malware into not just the device, but the app itself. This can also have a negative impact on other apps on your phone. Because identity theft and financial hacks are becoming more and more common, it's important to take extra security precautions to protect mobile apps and the people using them.
