Banking Wirelessly? Don’t Hack your Phone

Many smart phone users “hack” their phones, disabling or bypassing original software to open the device up to different applications, service carriers, or uses. That’s fine – but hacking your phone could also open it up to infection from viruses or other malware. Before you hack your phone, think about security: If you like to bank remotely, access accounts, or make transactions using your phone, hacking the phone could open your information up to theft.

While you’re at it, consider installing security software if your device allows. Safe, even if it is slightly less convenient, is always better than sorry.
