Daily usage of mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, has surpassed desktop and laptop computers in this day and age. Because of the growing popularity of these pocket-sized computing devices, and the fact that they are almost always full of a person’s personal information, attackers now have a number of incentives to try to compromise your mobile device. The purpose of this paper is to discuss some of the most common types of mobile device security threats today, and to provide you with the knowledge of how to protect your mobile device against them.
