Is the Apple iPhone really that vulnerable?
Seemingly a major concern these days is whether your smartphone is safe, and as such a survey has been conducted by Trend Micro which possibly shed some light on this matter which the results of are somewhat revealing.
According to an article on slashgear, 1000 smartphone users of 18 or older were used in the survey, and Trend Micro believe that hackers are drawn to the iPhone due to iPhone users being far more likely to use the iPhone for web surfing, visiting media sharing sites, receiving large emails, and shopping.
The results show that 44 percent believe browsing is safe on the iPhone while only 23 percent use security software and 1-in-5 believe adding security software would not help anything. 20 percent of all those surveyed have been impacted by some type of phishing scam with the most likely candidate being email, although phishing scams don’t seem to be necessarily targeted at the iPhone.
