The article said it clearly, "Criminals are obsessed with iOS...".
Windows Phone is safe (for now) because hacker is not (yet) interested in it.
Ios is so secure that 200 celebrities who have an iphone has been hacked
He is talking about vulnerabilities not about attacks. iOS and Android are vulnerable while Windows Phone is not regardless it is popular or not and hacker target it or not.
Yes Windows Phone certainly is the best mobile about security issues or anti-hacker, but Android is the best in a variety of things such as: Shopping Google applications (Playstore) most more many than any Windows as well as Apple, Android display (Launcher) can be altered various type, USB Connector more universal, Device options diversity and Easier file management system.
Windows phone is not a target yet. Nobody is using it.
I agree on Android, it's security is very easy to hack.
iOS is well secured.
sure, since the number of actual user of windows phone is less than the other OS. Why would hacker trouble themselves to hack into an OS with few user and limited apps?
Windows is the OS of future. It is slowly increasing its popularity. In the battle between Android and iOs, Windows will finally be a winner. After couple of years Android will fade out and new OSes will emerge. Windows was, is and always be there.
because almost no one is using it, why would a hacker waste his time by making a virus on platform thats below 5% of the total smartphone market.
Well, not only windows phone OS is targeted less than android and iOS, the installation of apps is just secured - through official store. unlike Rooted android and Jailbroken iOS. But of course if one has to compare un-rooted android, remain-jailed iOS and Windows Phone, it would've resulted the same security rate, no?
Vulnerability is caused by the user, I think. Android and iOS are simply gave permissions is all.
Both Windows and Windows Phone are most secured. Windows 10 will take that security level higher. Microsoft is #1 software company for many reasons.
AnonD-305089, 11 Jun 2015Windows Phone also has less market space, so less target.OS X apple computers have less share than wp8 but it is more vulnerable.
The android and ios and OS x are more vulnerable hence this report.
lol, indeed... who would've hack MAC OS or iOS when they only had 5% market share ?
MAC could claim "Virus FREE" on that time
that's the point man, there is not too many apps on windows because all those developers cant get all your infos while you are using their softwares !!! who could be stupid enough to check their bank account on IOS or Android or even pay with their credit card with those OS.
aside the GUI of windows phone that I agreed should be more user friendly, the system is better than the others .
anyway time will tell
The more junk they put in phones the more access points there are for attacks. Give people the bare bones of the operating system and let them install what they want instead of the junk forced upon us.
Well it isn't flooded with a bunch of ugly icons the competition aside from BlackBerry relegated to.
