Smartphone users rely on their devices for just about everything: business, shopping, communication, entertainment, and the list goes on.
According to Statista, as of 2020 29.83 million Canadians have a smartphone, and reportedly the average user checks theirs more than 50 times a day.
But despite our reliance on our phones, many of us are not using them safely.
it’s no secret that the technology we use can make us a target for viruses and cyber attacks if not secured properly. When it comes to mobile device use, there is no manual that comes with a phone to teach the user mobile security. In addition, threats are always evolving and adjusting based on our habits.
