Phishing is still an effective method for hackers. And this includes our phones. The other day I received a text message purportedly from Barclays bank. I have an account there so it was possible but I was suspicious since the text message had a link in it that I was supposed to use to confirm a scheduled payout which was also possible. I called the bank and they said that it was not their text message and that they would never send a text message with a link asking to confirm a payout. So, always be on the safe side if you think something is a little suspicious - on ANY device. Also, phone apps lately have been the attack vector of some serious hacks. Let's stay vigilent.
