Don't Worry, Be 'Appy!

Crafty crooks are starting to use innocent looking smartphone apps to perpetrate fraud and mayhem.    Here are a few tips that will help protect both your phone and your wallet:

  • Always check online reviews before downloading apps.

  • Malicious apps drain more power than usual so pay attention to your battery life.

  • Review the terms and conditions before downloading the app or you could unknowingly give permission for developers to read your texts or peruse your photos.

There are a lot of great apps out there so you shouldn't let a few bad apps spoil the bunch :)  It's important to be cautious though, especially when it comes to app happy kids so talk to them about the hidden dangers lurking behind these downloads as it'll likely be you that has to foot the bill!
