Personally, I won't bloat my "phone" with any security sofware. However, me being a skeptic, won't use device to access online banking, and information consider sensitive. Is a departure from when I used iOS. Love my SGNx, but there is no way I'm going to input my passwords in here. I have used wallet over x20 times with a prepaid debit card as a precautionary step, just in case.

People are concerned about security and this is where Blackberry shined the most. However, with iOS and Android dominating the landscape, security may not be as specific as one would like. The truth is that it is still possible to deal with it regardless of the operating system and that is have some common sense about what you are installing.

anti-virus for mobile devices seems to be the next opportunity to make money off of a person's fear.
