CNN’s Amy Gahran writes an excellent article on mobile phone security today.

Some quotes:

“protecting yourself against mobile security risks doesn’t require getting paranoid about your phone. Rather, it’s about maintaining good habits, watching for red flags and deciding whether you need mobile security tools or services.”

“the best way to protect yourself against malware is to read the list of permissions that an Android app requests before you install it.”

“If you’re concerned about spyware, one way to avoid it is to never leave your phone unlocked. Always protect it with a passcode or pattern. If would-be snoopers cannot activate your phone, they can’t install anything on it.”
