Lookout has provided a very interesting infographic on how a phone gets phished that you can find after the break. People are using their mobile devices to access the web more and more, and as that trend grows, hackers and those not looking out for the user’s best interest will be paying more attention to mobile as well. When it comes to Android, most of these threats have been found in applications, but the mobile web is different. If there’s an exploit found within the code of a web browser, it doesn’t matter what operating system you’re on, and Safe Browsing is a great solution to help you safeguard against these kind of attacks.
“Safe Browsing leverages our global threat detection network that already protects millions of users from malicious applications. By extending protection with Safe Browsing, mobile consumers can feel safe surfing the web, accessing email and entering other personal information on their mobile device.” – Lookout CEO and founder, John Hering.
