  • Macro Globe to Micro World By Mobile Technology

Technology and internet have changed the world drastically, especially mobile technology, everything is available on smart phone’s touch screen from anywhere in the world hence life has become so comfortable but as discussed it has negative side also. It can be harmful if you avoid security concerns of app functionality.

Cybercrime is big issue for netizen today and mobile device has become soft target specifically when you deal with critical and confidential data through mobile app like users’ personal information, financial information, credit card details and information saved in browsing history etc. Same as for business firms when they have to store employees’ data, trade secrets and other undisclosed information which is crucial for business.
  • Awareness Makes difference

Many users are not aware about several apps which allow some features of mobile device to be activated remotely without users’ knowledge. This way security is a major issue in mobile app development even if any app development firm have good developers of android or ios they cannot ignore it because total growth of their mobile application development is on security that’s why it can’t be compromise at any cost.

Be careful about mobile app and protect your personal data from security threat
  • Possible Remedies

Mobile apps development firm must ensure that they are following OWASP standard which is crux of mobile app development and helps to build secure app.

Users need to check available public reviews, ratings and feedback on apps before installation in device. While using smartphone browser automatic download and installation of an app can be set off. Where android prevents automated download.

Your awareness gives shield to your confidential information

Mobile devices always give alert to users when they transfer app from untrusted sources. Google based apps which are integrated with google accounts that allows users to erase sensitive information from their android or ios device in case of loss of device.

Thus not only user but also an app development firm will have to be smart enough for smooth and safe usage or development of mobile applications. Because precaution always proves beneficially when it pertains to security!
