As per McAfee, India is the world’s fastest rising smartphone market slated to have 185 million mobile internet users by June 2014 (IAMAI), and the second biggest user base for Android accounting for over 93% market share (IDC). Device proliferation and the resultant application explosion has increased potential vulnerabilities and made ‘mobile’ a significant threat perception.The latest mobile security trends report by McAfee found that around 82% of apps track users and 80% of apps collect location information – invading our privacy successfully. Additionally, McAfee’s recent ‘Love Relationship and Technology’ survey on Indian mobile consumption behavior revealed threats arising out of indiscriminate usage of mobile phones and sharing of private content on mobile devices. It unveils that 98% of polled Indian respondents use smartphones to take pictures and more than 66% of polled respondents claimed to share their mobile content.

“With India placed on the tip of mobile device explosion, there is an overwhelming need of adoption of security and privacy protection in our digital lives said Jagdish Mahapatra, Managing Director, India and SAARC, McAfee. With free access to our award-winning mobile security product, Indian consumers will be empowered to access all the benefits of this connected world and enjoy a safe mobile life.” He added “McAfee is committed towards raising awareness on cyber threats, to enable personal data security and protect digital lives.
