Most of us have developed a very close personal relationship with our mobile devices: we carry them with us throughout the day, check them frequently, and even sleep with them nearby at night. Although mobile devices allow us to instantly connect with friends and family, to access the internet, get directions and make purchases, this increased convenience also comes at an increased risk. Many of these online activities require us to provide personal information, such as name, email address, account number and credit card information. This puts us at risk of having this information compromised by cyber criminals. It’s important to understand how to protect yourself when connecting on the go.
