Everyone knows that they need to have antivirus software installed on their PC, notebook or netbook, even if in practice there are still some crazy people that don't bother.
Perhaps what is not as well known is that there is a threat to smartphones and tablets and it is perhaps surprising that you would even think about protecting your phone or tablet from viruses!
But then when you step back and think about it why wouldn’t you?
Your phone is likley to be able to browse the internet, run apps and has access to lots of personal information such as user names, passwords, contact data and the ability to dial premium rate telephone numbers.
According to leading sources this year will be a boom year for mobile viruses, have a look at the following link to a report from Cisco for more information. It suggests that Windows, Android and Apple based phones (particularly if you jailbreak it to get non apple apps) are all at risk and so if you have one of these you might want to take a look.
So what can you do?
Can you even get antivirus software for mobile phones? Yes you can!
So I would seriously advise you to look at putting some protection in place before you become a victim of this crime.
ESET is the product that we recommend, but there others available.
