iPhone and Mobile Phone App Safety
Let's face it. You love your new phone. It may be an iPod. It may be the latest smart phone running Windows Mobile. Whatever the case, it's important to keep you phone safe, and more importantly, ensure that the applications running on your iphone or mobile phone are safe.
App Safety is Important
Your phone isn't just the tool that you use to communicate with the rest of the world--it hosts all the sensitive information you put into it. Think about it. Your mobile phone has your contacts email sitting unencrypted inside. Moreover, most mobile phone application platforms are open for developers, the same developers that put apps in the iphone app store, or that make a windows mobile app, are the same ones that could be designing malicious software to take control of your phone, and hijack your contacts, compromising your mobile phone's application security. They won't even have to use a phone reverse lookup service to get this information. Mobile phone apps are an extremely new technology, so appsafety.com is here to make sure you stay safe.
Mobile Phone and iPhone Security is a Must
The mobile phone and iphone application environment is open to dangerous manipulations, so it's important that the iphone and mobile phone community carefully watches the development of these mobile apps, to ensure safety. Applications are run natively on the machine so we need to make sure no unscrupulous developers use buffer overflow problems associated with C/C++/Objective-C based programming to take advantage of mobile and iphone users.
Your iPhone and Mobile Phone Wireless Security Risks
Your iphone or mobile phone likely also has built in wireless settings, which could compromise security more. Image a thief taking advantage of your phone's wireless capabilities to steal your contacts, and other confidential information on your phone?
iPhone's and mobile phones with these features are certainly cool, let's make sure we all stay safe as we enjoy them
