Security for Mobile Phones


While mobile phone operating systems are typically not thought of as vulnerable to malware and viruses, they can be affected by malicious websites, e-mail or apps. OU IT strongly suggested users always update their mobile phone and device operating systems with the latest stable security fixes and patches released by their mobile operating system provider and cell phone carrier.
