Mobile Security

By: James Bassil, AskMen

I’ve become less stressed about online security recently. Not due to any increased protection measures on my part; I’ve been coasting on the same free antivirus software and rotation of passwords since the early ‘00s (except at work, where the IT team forces me to invent new and difficult-to-remember passwords every month). My reassurance has come from the evolution of the digital world into a shinier, more secure place. I used to worry about losing my hard drive, but now all those music and picture files are tucked safely away into the cloud. I used to worry about getting hacked, but now I spend most of my time on Apple mobile platforms -- and the hackers like Apple people, right?
