Apps are everywhere—and so are the security risks related to them. Appthority, a mobile app security firm, analyzed 400 of the most popular paid and free apps on mobile devices, on both on iOS and Android platforms, and found staggering results.
Appthority’s “Summer 2013 App Reputation report” determined that a whopping 83 percent of mobile apps pose some sort of security risk.
The report found iOS apps exhibited more risky behaviors than Android apps overall. Ninety-one percent of iOS apps exhibit at least one risky behavior, compared to 80 percent of Android apps.
