Why Emsisoft Mobile Security? 

Question

22% of the world’s population owns a smartphone or mobile device. 20% owns a computer. If you were creating malware and wanted to infect as many people as you possibly could, which platform would you choose?

Answer

While an extra 2% might not seem like much, it would actually give you access to an additional 140 million devices. Furthermore, it's been shown that SMS messaging fraud generates around $10/per infection, immediately. That's a potential 1.4 billion dollars in additional revenue.

How do the most popular mobile threats work

SMS Messaging Trojans

Text messaging Trojans are involved in 73% of all mobile attacks. Usually, SMS Messaging Trojans are hiding behind mobile apps that look legitimate. However, these seemingly legitimate apps connect your device to a premium SMS messaging service which is own by the attacker. As a result, the attacker hijacks the device and programs it to send SMS messages to a premium rate phone number, followed by the huge bill you will receive.

Mobile Rootkits

Mobile Rootkits log keystrokes to kidnap your personal information including usernames and passwords. Further, the personal information is shared with a remote server. What is more, rootkits are also able to log and share your location, monitor your SMS messages, phone calls and other activities.

Mobile Botnets

Mobile Botnets are able to take over and control thousands of mobile devices at once. Attackers behind mobile botnets often have nefarious purposes, such as mining cryptocurrency. As a result, devices start to act weird, the speed and the battery life decreases. It is important that mobile devices are being used more than PCs, so Mobile Botnets are also becoming more popular among attackers. 

What is more, that nearly one-third of all free mobile applications have the access to your personal information, camera, or the permission to track your location, no matter they are malicious or not. So users have to be careful with the permissions and access they give to barely known apps and their developers.

System Requirements

Emsisoft Mobile Security can be run on Android devices with Android 4.0 and later.
