Published on 25 July 17

In 1970, the first personal computer came, when VisiCalc spreadsheet was considered as a killer app. Later, after Apple made smartphone revolution in 2007, smartphone got many applications that could be easily downloaded from the app store.

When Microsoft renewed Windows 8 to run on tablets and smartphones, it brought in a similar subsystem for apps. This enabled Windows to run sandbox apps installed by the windows app store. In fact, these apps are more secure than old version

Now Microsoft Edge on Windows 10 is the latest upgraded version of Microsoft. So it’s much better than Internet Explorer. Otherwise, Chrome is the most secure app substitute. Because it runs in Google own strong sandbox.

When it comes to banking, apps are more secure than browsers. But some apps may invite vulnerabilities through insecure links.

Over the last five years or so, the way of using apps has changed.

Browsers can be risky because there are some Trojans designed to gather banking information. On the other hand, apps are also somewhat risky because there are many apps in the app stores that contain malware.

So users have to be careful when banking online. If it is home network, there is not much security flaws. When they need to use the internet outside the home, they should make sure they use their mobile network, not any public Wi-Fi. In Windows 10, user can keep one browser for financial transaction.Device is not a problem whatever device is user using the best way to secure you’re app is end to end cypher

Going even further, you could keep a password protected Apple iPad at home for banking. You shouldn’t install any other apps into it, which is one of the most secure ways to do banking online.
