Cyber Security: Mobile Risks

Short animated film from CyberArabs.

Activists and journalists commonly forget that their mobile phones are vulnerable to intrusive hacking.

This film underlines the importance of taking precautions when using email, internet and social networking sites via mobile phone, and offers some tips.

This film was made by IWPR’s project on digital security for the Middle East. More material (in Arabic) can be found at CyberArabs website and on the CyberArabs Facebook page
