    Anti-virus for the BB?

    Advertisement



    I have McAfee's Anti-this and Anti-that Total Protection Plus blah blah blah for my pc but now they are offering me a similar service for my mobile phone. It turns out that it is currently only offered for microsoft OS platforms, but is this something that i should be worrying about? Do really need another app on my phone to check if i have trojans so that i dont get worms, err, you know what i mean. But most importantly, is it ok to use my credit card info on my bb or log onto my online banking account?

    You won't need that. BB are secure devices. Since they have their own OS they aren't as vulnerable to virus than Windows devices.

    I can't log onto my bank account from my BB so I can't help on this one. Plenty of people do if their banks allows it.

    Just like Reddog said, this site is a wonderful source of knowledge... you will learn quickly too.

    As for banking and credit card info... you can do banking but I have not tried doing anything using a credit card or doing purchases yet.
