This is an awesome article to read. In brief it explains how hackers only need internet access to steak your information. What better place to start then your phone which is almost always on and connected? The article brings up a couple good points. They were brief and not expanded upon. But please take notice.

Why use the Facebook for Android app when you could just add easily use the HTML web client? Is almost the exact same experience as the app but a lot more secure. Not to mention the web app doesn’t run in the background, saving you precious battery juice. Another point is that you should have some sort of protection installed on your phone. This article is promoting AVG. I use Avast at home, while my wife uses AVG on her PC.

So what app do you have on your phone to protect you? If you don’t have one installed, why not? Just wondering.
