Security of Mobile Applications: Threats and Solutions

The use of mobile applications has increased rapidly in recent years. Mobile applications are used in many areas of our lives and are becoming more and more popular among people. However, the use of mobile applications also brings many risks in terms of security. In this article, we will cover 10 important items related to the security of mobile applications.

Be careful when downloading from app stores:

Download applications from mobile application stores from reliable sources. Google Play and App Store are the most common and reliable mobile app stores.

Mobile application stores allow users to easily download many different applications. However, it is very important to be careful about the security of downloaded applications. Because some apps published in app stores may be malware or apps designed to hijack your personal data.

Therefore, it is necessary to be careful when downloading apps from app stores. Apps downloaded from trusted sources are less likely to contain malware. Google Play and App Store are the most common and reliable mobile app stores. Apps published in these stores undergo stricter security checks and are less likely to contain malware.

If you want to download apps from other app stores, it’s important to research their reliability first. Installing apps that were not downloaded from a trusted source may damage your device. Therefore, it is very important for the security of your device to be careful while downloading applications from the application stores and to choose reliable sources.

Pay attention to app permissions:

Understand what app permissions are and why they are needed. Do not approve permissions that are not related to the service the app offers you.

Mobile apps may request permission from users to access their devices. These permissions are necessary for the application to work, but in some cases unnecessary permissions may be requested. Therefore, it is extremely important for users to pay attention to application permissions.

For example, a music player application may request a permission to access music files stored on your device. This permission is required by the app because the purpose of the app is to play music. However, when a weather app requests access to your photo gallery, you should be skeptical as to why this permission is needed. In this case, it may turn out that the permission is unnecessary and not related to the service the application offers you.

Therefore, you should carefully read the app permissions and only approve the permissions required for the app to work. It is also important to understand why the app collects or uses your data. Some apps may collect user data to advertise. Therefore, paying attention to app permissions and denying unnecessary permissions is an important step to keep your data safe.

Read the app’s privacy policy:

Read the app’s privacy policy to learn how the app will use your data.

When using a mobile app, it’s important to read the app’s privacy policy to understand how the app collects and uses data about you. App developers often access your data such as your device location, personal information, calendar, and more by asking users for certain permissions. That’s why it’s important to read the app’s privacy policy to understand how the app uses and shares this data.

By reading the app’s privacy policy, you can understand how the app will use data about you. For example, if you use a social media app, you can learn how the app will use your data such as your name, age, gender, interests, and other personal information. This information may be used by the app or shared with third-party advertisers. That’s why it’s important to read the app’s privacy policy to understand how the app uses and shares this data.

The privacy policy may also provide information on how the app protects your data and what security measures it takes. Therefore, before downloading a mobile app, it is important to read the app’s privacy policy and understand how the app uses and protects your data.

Install updates:

Do not forget to install updates for the security of the application. Updates contain fixes to improve the security of the application.

For the security of mobile applications, the developers of the application constantly release updates to fix the application’s vulnerabilities and protect against new threats. That’s why it’s important to regularly check and install updates while using mobile apps. Updates contain fixes, patches and enhancements to improve the security of the application. Updates can also help keep your mobile device’s operating system up-to-date and may include new security features. Therefore, installing updates released by application developers in a timely manner is an important step for the security of mobile applications.

Security of Mobile Applications Threats and Solutions (3)

Do not jailbreak or root:

Jailbreaking or rooting your device will break the device’s firewall, allowing apps to run differently than they normally do. This may cause malicious applications to access the device more easily.

Jailbreak or rooting is a process to remove the restrictions set by the device manufacturer. As a result of this action, the security of the device is reduced because the security measures are disabled. This allows malicious apps to easily access the device.

Also, jailbreaking or rooting may void the device’s warranty. Therefore, you should think carefully before jailbreaking or rooting your device.

Encrypt your mobile device:

Encrypting your mobile device is a way to secure your data on your device. Encryption prevents the data on your device from falling into the hands of outsiders.

Encrypting your mobile device is one of the most effective ways to secure your data on your device. Encryption increases your data security by preventing the data on your device from falling into the hands of strangers. The encryption process makes the data on your device unreadable so that if your device is lost or stolen, your personal data is prevented from being compromised by malicious people.

Mobile devices are usually encrypted with the encryption option in the settings. The encryption process affects all data on your device and encrypted data becomes inaccessible before entering the password on your device’s lock screen. That’s why it’s important to set your device’s password as complex and strong as possible.

Encryption can negatively affect the performance of your device, but it is very important for data security. Encrypted devices are of great importance, especially in devices used in businesses, devices with sensitive data that must be managed in accordance with data security policies, and when mobile devices are connected to the workplace network.

Back up your data:

By backing up your data regularly, you can get it back from your backups in case you lose your data.

The data we store on our mobile devices may include our important business, personal and emotional information. Therefore, the loss or damage of this data can be a serious problem. To avoid this situation, it is recommended to back up your data regularly.

Data backup is the process of storing your data on your device by copying it to another location. This copying is usually done using alternative storage options such as cloud storage services, external hard drives, or your computer’s hard drive.

Backing up your data ensures that your loss is limited in case the data is lost or damaged. Also, when you get a new device or your current device needs to be reinstalled, you can easily restore your backed up data. That’s why it’s important to regularly back up your data stored on your mobile device.

Secure your network connections:

Securing your network connections is an important way to secure the use of mobile apps. By connecting to a secure Wi-Fi network, you can ensure that your data is protected.

You can follow these steps to secure your network connections:

Before connecting to an open Wi-Fi network, make sure the network you are connecting to is secure. Verify the network name and password from another trusted source.

Always keep your network name and password in a safe place. Also be careful when sharing with the people you want to share with.

Use HTTPS for a secure connection. HTTPS secures your communication by creating an encrypted connection between your internet browser and the server.

While connecting to the network, check the shared folders. Always check the settings of shared folders before connecting to the network and only share the necessary ones.

To increase the security of your network, use firewall and anti-virus software. This can prevent malware and other harmful applications from entering your device.

When setting up your own Wi-Fi network, use a strong password and use the WPA2 or WPA3 security protocol. A strong password can prevent others from accessing your network.

Security of Mobile Applications Threats and Solutions (1)

Use mobile apps as much as you need:

Unnecessarily downloading and using mobile applications may lead to the installation of harmful applications on your device. Avoid downloading and using apps you don’t need.

Unnecessary downloading of mobile applications may also lead to the download of applications that are in the application stores of the users and may actually be harmful. That’s why it’s important to use mobile apps as much as you need to and avoid unnecessary downloads.

Downloading apps you don’t need can not only cause harmful apps to install on your device, but can also fill your storage space and make your device run slower. So download and use only the apps you need.

Install OS updates:

Install your mobile device’s operating system updates regularly. Updates increase the security of your device and protect against new threats.

The operating systems of mobile devices can be exposed to security vulnerabilities over time, and these vulnerabilities can allow malicious people to infiltrate your device or gain access to your sensitive data. Therefore, it is important to regularly install operating system updates for the security of your device.

Operating system updates contain fixes to fix existing vulnerabilities, improve device performance, and add new features. Updating increases the security of the device and provides protection against potential threats.

Mobile device users can check for updates by going to device settings to keep their device’s operating systems up to date. For the security of your device, regularly check for updates and update as soon as possible when an update is available.

As a result, the security of mobile applications is very important. By taking into account the above items to ensure the security of our mobile devices, we can have a safe mobile use experience. However, do not forget that being careless about security can cause harmful applications to be installed on our device and our personal data to be stolen.
