The feeling that many users have is confirmed: the number of attacks by cyber criminals is rising steadily. The aim is to commit theft, fraud and blackmail in virtual space.

Attacks on mobile devices are increasingly the focus of hackers. They also - or above all - do not stop at companies. The ITK industry association Bitkom has this to report. In a study, the experts found that every second user (55 percent) was a victim of criminal incidents on the Internet in 2019. This in turn means an increase of five percentage points compared to the previous year, and the trend is therefore upwards. So you should also protect yourself against an infection of your smartphone.
