FaceApp, the AI-powered photo editing app, went viral for quite a while until various experts expressed concerns about cybersecurity. In light of these concerns, we’ve put together a quick factsheet on mobile applications and cybersecurity.

Online Security

Here are a few tried and true ways to protect yourself:

  • Download applications from trusted sources only and do your research before hitting install.
  • Keep your mobile phone’s operating system up-to-date at all times with the latest upgrades and patches.
  • Take a look at the application’s permissions and privacy policy before you decide to download.
  • Check out reviews online for each application you download to make sure there are no noted issues.
  • Update applications you’re using on a regular basis and delete those you’re not using anymore.
  • Look for warning signs, such as excessive permissions, pop-up ads, and in-app purchases.

As a last note for parents, make sure you’re checking what your children are downloading, or better yet, make sure they can’t download anything without your permission!
