Don’t Forget about Mobile Security when Gambling Online

There are more people than ever before using mobile devices to gamble online. Because there are so many mobile devices, there is more risk of these devices being hacked. A recent bug, named Shellshock, targeted computers, phones, mobile devices, etc. Online gamblers were part of the group of users who were targeted by the bug. The bug was reportedly putting Mac computers and Android smartphones at risk. Patches were put in place to solve the problem to some extent but the bug showed just how vulnerable mobile devices can be.

If you are using your mobile device to gamble online then you need to have firewalls and virus software on your smartphone or tablet. Many people forget all about anti-virus software and firewalls when they are using their mobile devices. That should not be the case as the mobile device is even more at risk than a home computer.

There are many good anti-virus programs on the market. Some are free and others have a yearly fee. It doesn’t matter which of the programs you choose as long as you find software that is reliable and that will protect you when you are using your mobile device. Online gamblers need to be extremely vigilant because they are using real money to play online casino games and have personal information that could be at risk on their mobile device.

Check out the anti-virus and firewalls in place on your mobile device today and upgrade them if needed.
