Chapter title: Models of Privacy and Security Issues on Mobile Applications
Abstract:The development of smart phones and other smart devices has lead to the development of mobile applications, which are in use frequently by the users. It is also anticipated that the number of mobile applications will grow rapidly in the next years. This topic has therefore been highly researched in the past years. Mobile applications gather user data and that is why privacy and security in mobile applications is a very important research topic. In this chapter we give an overview of current research on privacy and security issues of mobile applications.
Keywords: privacy, security, mobile devices, mobile applications, literature review
