Half of UK consumers think mobiles aren’t secure

Online security company Cloudmark is the latest to highlight consumer concerns with mobile phone security. Their recent UK survey has shown that 51% of consumers are worried about mobile security and 52% don't believe that the information they send via mobile phone is secure. In fact, just 7% think information they send is secure. As a result of these security concerns, 69% of consumers say they wouldn't use value-added services such as mobile banking and 37% wouldn't shop online.

Although it’s easy to dismiss this type of survey as self-serving – Cloudmark is also launching a new security service for mobile networks – many of those consumer concerns aren’t misplaced. As James Rosewell pointed out in last week’s podcast, even some banks seem to misunderstand mobile security risks.
