Anti Spam & Antivirus for Mobile Phones

Recommended Posts

It's becoming much more common these days, especially with built in technologies like wi-fi and bluetooth. Many security vendors make versions of their software for mobile devices for just this purpose. If you have your phone secure for bluetooth connections (ie not set to accept a connection without some sort of confirmation/authentication) and you don't use puplic wi-fi hotspots then you're relatively safe. Of course there's still the threat of emails that are infected and malicious websites that contain malware that infects smart phones. The phone I have doesn't have internet access or bluetooth so I don't worry about it, but if I had a smart phone with those features and I surfed the internet with it, then I would use an anti-virus on it.
