iPhone vs Android – experts reveal if YOUR phone is a hacking risk

IS your iPhone or Android safer when it comes to privacy and security? Cyber-experts reckon Apple has it won.

But it’s more complicated than just switching to iPhone – because often hack attacks are your fault.

Apple and Google both pump huge resources into keeping you safe.

And iPhone and Android devices are now incredibly sophisticated at keeping hackers out.

Sadly, both platforms are compromised from time to time – so you’re never truly safe from crooks.

But if you’re concerned about security, which is best?

“iPhone has always performed better when it comes to security,” said Javvad Malik, security expert at KnowBe4, speaking to The Sun.

“One of the underlying reasons is that as a company, Apple controls the entire process from manufacturing of the hardware and software within the entire ecosystem.”

Javvad went on: “When we look at successful attacks, many rely on fooling users.

“So there is an element which is outside of the phone providers control.

“However, again, this is where Apple tends to perform better by notifying users in a proactive way when an app is seeking permissions or trying to access certain data.”

Mobile mayhem

The big problem for tech firms is often that users will make silly mistakes.

And hackers are getting increasingly sophisticated, so it’s easier to fall foul of their scams.

You might be attacked over email, text message, phone call or some other method.

And while Apple and Google can work to prevent that, they can’t stop it entirely.

“Neither Android nor iOS devices are immune to risks such as mobile phishing and malware that lead to more advanced attacks such as ransomware or cryptojacking,” said Burak Agca, cyber-security expert at Lookout.

“There’s no silver bullet as attackers are constantly evolving the ways in which they target and compromise mobile users.”

So what can you do to stay safe? The best thing is to keep your device updated.

Whether you use an iPhone or Android, making sure you have the latest software is the best way to stay ahead of the hackers.

“Regardless of what type of device you use, if Apple and Google are concerned enough to put out a patch that affects billions of users, it’s probably a good idea to take a well-earned 15-minute break and update your phone and restart it once a day,” Burak told The Sun.

“It’s the safest thing to do and can protect both your personal and work data from compromise.”
