Q: How can I protect myself when using a chat/messenger application on a mobile device? Is it safer to use a web-based instant messenger? I’m concerned with applications accessing the other information on my device.

    When you install these applications they will tell you what information the program has access to on your phone.

    Most of the major chat programs are fine to use on your mobile device and do not open your phone up to threats unless you download files.
