Are you at risk of being scammed on your phone? Millions don’t have antivirus software – and feel pressured by limited-time offers

As many as 61 per cent of smartphone users could be leaving themselves vulnerable to scammers online, according to a new survey.

With more people now shopping online with their phones than ever before, only two in five surveyed by IT security company ESET were certain they had antivirus software on their mobile phones.,

Additionally, many also revealed they would consider downloading an app, entering an online competition, or clicking through to a deal received via email to take advantage of limited-time offers.
