A survey by Russia-based Kaspersky Lab has found 27 percent of Australians are not interested in using Internet banking on their smartphone or tablet.
Kaspersky ANZ MD Andrew Mamonitis said this is an increase from the 17 percent recorded in last year’s Consumer Security Risks report. “The study highlights that Australians have a general awareness of a host of online threats,” he said.
Some 67 percent of respondents attributed the distrust to mobile devices being just as vulnerable to cybercrime as desktop and notebook PCs. “They are mindful that the businesses they entrust their information with are subjected to the same online threats as home users,” Mamonitis said.
