Factsheet on Mobile Applications and Cybersecurity
FaceApp, the AI-powered photo editing app, went viral for quite a while until various experts expressed concerns about cybersecurity. In light of these concerns, we’ve put together a quick factsheet on mobile applications and cybersecurity.
Here are a few tried and true ways to protect yourself:
Download applications from trusted sources only and do your research before hitting install.
Keep your mobile phone’s operating system up-to-date at all times with the latest upgrades and patches.
Check out reviews online for each application you download to make sure there are no noted issues.
Update applications you’re using on a regular basis and delete those you’re not using anymore.
Look for warning signs, such as excessive permissions, pop-up ads, and in-app purchases.
As a last note for parents, make sure you’re checking what your children are downloading, or better yet, make sure they can’t download anything without your permission!
