With smartphone penetration at an all-time high, mobile device sare one of the most susceptible mediums that hackers target for cyberattacks. Nearly every individual has a smartphone with them at all times. Throughout a normal day, a smartphone user is exposed to many networks; this includes unprotected WIFI networks, hotspots and more. When a user connects to an unprotected network, their data can be easily accessed. Additionally, smartphones are one of the most valuable assets. If a person unlocks a person’s smartphone, they can get access to sensitive information like credit cards, IDs, emails and passwords for all their websites.
