When thinking about security, you must not forget about your phone. This is because devices carried by us in our pockets on a daily basis constitute a priceless source of information and a gateway through which someone might reach for our money.
Criminals also use smartphones in order to use them to “mine” cryptocurrency. And in this case the victim cannot use the device. The smartphone is the hackers’ “slave” and they use it to conduct specialist cryptographic calculations. In extreme cases, they can cause the battery to overheat and become physically damaged.
