Due to popular demand Rod Cambridge, the author of 'How NOT To Use Your Smartphone', has released a paperback version of the eBook.
Increasingly, smartphone users are being hacked because they don't
understand how to configure or use their devices safely. And identity
thieves can do an awful lot of bad once they have someone's personal
information. The bad guys can trick smartphone owners into connecting to
insecure Wi-Fi networks where their credentials and other private
information becomes exposed.
They can drop malware onto a device without
the user realising, or make the smartphone call or text premium numbers
that the bad guys own, pocketing the cash while the user ends up with
huge bills. All too often the victims of hackers also have to deal with
financial, banking, credit card, and utilities fraud, loss of social and
professional reputation, and more.
In this book, computer security professional Rod Cambridge highlights
the dangers of mobile computing and provides solutions, tips, and advice
to help the user avoid being hacked through their smartphone.
"Smartphone and tablet users just don't realise how vulnerable they are
to ID theft" said Rod, "the bad guys know that users often engage in the
risky usage practices that I highlight in the book, so they now have
smartphones and tablets firmly in their sights - especially as these
devices typically contain valuable information such as contacts,
addresses, passwords, and account details."
Smartphone owners armed with this book will be able to identify, and
avoid, those risky usage practices - protecting their valuable
information and data at the same time.
