Do not download these applications on your phone!
Today, we use apps for almost everything, from communicating with our environment to making our shopping list. However, some applications may have undetected dangers to your data security and privacy.
We deal with our own personal data on a daily basis, as well as the digital information of our employers, employees, colleagues and customers. While public data can be easily accessed by anyone looking for it, many types of digital information need to be carefully handled and protected. Some of these may be internal data, confidential data such as ID numbers, restricted data such as legally protected data. Users could compromise their data through common application services and came up with seven types of dangerous applications.
Many people go through the Terms and Conditions of Use before using a new app or signing up for a new service. Many applications are so widely used that we never stop to think about possible digital security implications.
Translation applications have to process a lot of information to translate it into the target text. While translating a particular word is okay, when it comes to translating an entire paragraph or document, the problem can be exponential. Be careful what data you enter into translation apps. Be wary of free apps without a license.
These applications may need to handle sensitive data in uploaded documents. So always use only pre-approved apps.
