“85% of phishing attacks seen on mobile devices take place outside of email. While many organizations have filtering in place to block email-based attacks, far fewer have similar protection in place for these other routes,” according to Verizon’s Mobile Security Index 2019. Furthermore, the Federal Trade Commission reported 93,000 complaints about unwanted texts in 2018, including “smishing” attempts (phishing via SMS), which was up 30% from the previous year. According to current reports, the number of fraud texts is continuing to increase this year.
