Windows Phone Is the Most Secure Mobile Platform - Hacker Claims
« on: November 07, 2015, 01:03:01 PM »

In an interview for What Mobile, white hat hacker Steve Lord offered his opinion on which mobile operating system he thinks is currently the most secure.

Your smartphone can never be secure enough

According to him, all mobile OSes that are used these days have benefits and downsides, but he thinks Windows Phone is the hardest to hack.

?Currently Windows Phone seems to be the hardest nut to crack. Blackberry has a long history of being very security-focused. If I have physical access to the device, I find Android?s usually the easiest target.

?Then comes iPhone, then older versions of BlackBerry. If it?s over a network or I have to attack via email or message, Android?s usually the softest target.?

He also suggests those who can't afford newer smartphones to try and use a feature phone or an old BlackBerry 10 smartphone. A good choice will be a smartphone running Windows Phone 8 or newer, too.

Steve also says that Cyanogen OS is more secure on Android smartphones, but he also recommends that if you must use an Android phone, then you should get one of the Nexus-branded devices as they usually receive security updates very often.

If you want to know more on how you can protect your phone from prying eyes, then you should definitely check out Steve Lord's full interview.
