More features, popularity and user freedom brings more risk of attack. So security of wp > ios > android.
wp os was built around security , easy of use and alternative os.
android was built for popularity and freedom as a core so that more users more data for google.
ios was built to capture users in their own eco system . so once inside no way out.

Even if Windows Phone is unhackable today, you can't say the same for tomorrow. Windows Phone security is proprietary, we never know how their internal mechanism works, means they use security by obscurity. Wise man said, software should be secure by design. If you rely on obscurity, that implies the actual program is not secure.
most of people think that "more users = more attacks" that is true. But "more users = more vulnerabilities" is not true. Though an OS has less vulnerabilities, if it is more popular it has to face more attacks. But an OS with more vulnerabilities and less popularity has to face less attacks. vulnerabilities means weak points. If windows (phone) get more market share in future it will face more attacks (though it has less vulnerabilities).
(pardon me for my poor English)
There is no chance to hack windows phones. windows apps format is xap those are only run form store and not allowed to run from file manager..there is no option of unknown sources and unknown apps running in windows phone.you cant install any app from any file manager.auto running apps are entirely not allowed in windows phones.In android , apk mvirus files will hack everything about your privacy. so, I always like windows phones only for good security and privacy.but only the problem is no call recording feature available and no screen record feature available.no launcher available.But Excellent in security.You can believe all apps in the store.

You're hired by Microsoft to speak for them?
Windows phone is less than 1% of the total smartphone in the world, no one is interested to bother.
This is my reason . Why I choose windows phone than other popular OS. Windows Phone is fast n clean.. It just simple OS. But it's very good OS
In better news, Kaspersky was hacked because of a Microsoft flaw. Read about it.

As for the article, tens of millions of people use Windows phone, yet nobody found a way to jailbreak it or install pirated apps?
This is market share argument all over again. Why would people bother messing up with an OS with such insignificant market share. Also, this is Kaspersky, an AV company. Their huge market was always Windows from the start.
