mobile security

Do you use any mobile security apps to protect your phone from leaking data? What is your experience? For example, if you use Power BI on smartphone - and you store confidential information.

Re: mobile security

I generally go with avast on my mobile phone, it has full functionality and I can't remember having a problem from using it in terms of securing my data

Re: mobile security

 Does it have a free version on mobile? I don't have very new smartphone. Do you think that it can slow down my mobile phone?

mobile app protection

Hello,

 

what do you think about mobile data protection? Do you install any antivirus or other programmes to secure your phone? What are your experience?

Re: mobile security

So far my experience with mobile security apps is that they end up slowing down your mobile phone like a lot and randomly end up installing other apps that you did not want to.

 

In mi opinion a mobile phone is not in the need of external security apps duo to the integrity and own security of the apps by themselves, all the apps that you may be using such are whatsapp, facebook, gmail, etc (not only the well known ones) have already enough security integration with scripts, encriptation and many more things in order to avoid any kind of data leak.

 

Cheers,

Re: mobile security

Of course I agree that any extra app which works in background will impact your phone speed. Maybe you don't see positive influence because nothing bad happened to your phone and data? 

 

I was just curious because there is a lot of articles like: https://www.netguru.co/blog/ios-app-security-how-to-protect-users-sensitive-data-in-mobile-applicati... - guides how to protect your phone and if it is not helpful who use it?

 

I agree that external apps, especially this very popular such as FB, gmail etc. are enough protected. But how about your gallery or messages?
