Top Five Ways Your Smartphone Attacked By Virus

As consumers, we can be stilled into a fake sensation of protection when it comes to electronics and downloads. We often believe that if we visit only reputable websites and only download apps, music and games from reputable sites, then all is good. Unfortunately, it’s not.

Computer viruses have made consumers suffers for many years now, causing companies to install every kind of firewall protection known to mankind and individuals to drop hundreds of bucks each year on keeping their security software updated.

Smartphones are the new laptops – but with a smaller, sexier design. As Smartphones continue to get along and consumers continue to utilize them for everything from getting photos of their youngsters in the green to managing their financial portfolios, Viruses and hackers will stay on to find new hunting grounds, and computer security software companies will go on to transform their mobile virus protection software. Below are five ways your phone can pick up a virus:

Downloading Apps – Before you can act with a new app, you have to download it and accept the terms and conditions. As a conscious consumer, you read every word in these agreements, right? But majority of consumers, the answer to that question is (with a shameful bow of the head). Inside the tiny print of those permission agreements, you may drop the section telling what the app will have access to, including your location, contacts list, social media news reports, email, text and picture messages, calendar and so forth. Pretty scary stuff, huh? The best mobile virus protection software scans every app before it is fully downloaded to your Smartphone and produces a report detailing any threats the app may pose.

The Web – Internet downloads are probably the easiest way for your cell phone to get a virus. With your preferred TV show or funny book on the course, you may be quick to download any file that promises that content. Beware! You have no idea what could be coded into those files. If your phone is not protected by mobile antivirus software, you will likely get more than just the latest "Community" episode. Cell phone virus protection software scans every file download and creates a report. If the file triggers a red flag, the application will place it into a quarantine section. Here, you can see a damage report and decide if you want to delete the infected item or proceed with the download.

PC Hook-ups – If your kid travels to school and a classmate has lice, it is probable that your child will arrive home with a hair full of the unwanted bugs. The same concept is true any time you connect your Smartphone to your computer via USB. If your computer has a bug and your phone is not protected, it will get the malware, too. The best mobile virus protection software completes real-time, scheduled and on-demand scans, each digging deep to discover anything that doesn't go. The scans include USB connections and any information passed between your Smartphone and computer.

Message Attachments – Whether it's personal or business, you may get hundreds of texts, video messages and emails every day. You simply dismiss or edit text from unfamiliar numbers and your email's spam box filters out the most obvious offenders. If your Smartphone has a virus, however, it can send you texts and emails that are disguised as messages from familiar contacts, which you'll probably open, letting out your phone to damage. Mobile antivirus protection software monitors your Smartphone in real time to observe and give up any malicious material from infiltrating your Smartphone.

Bluetooth Connection – In an article published in MIT's "Technology Review" in 2005, experts predicted that Bluetooth-enabled telephones and connections would become the superhighways for airborne viruses. Like the human cold or flu viruses, Bluetooth phones can infect one another by merely being in the same Neighbourhood. This is quite dreadful, as almost every phone, Smartphone or not, has Bluetooth capabilities. Not every application provides mobile virus protection, so when purchasing mobile software for your phone, make sure it specifically states that it monitors your Bluetooth connection in real time.

As more and more consumers use their Smartphone’s to store their personal and professional information, the temptation for hackers to create dangerous viruses and other malware will continue to increase. Even now, Smartphone’s are a primary target for malicious code. Protect yourself now. In less than 10 minutes, you can download mobile security software to shield your phone and data.
