As the use of mobile devices increase, there has been a similar increase in the proliferation of applications (apps) for the mobile device market.
Mobile device apps provide a convenient way to transact and access personal information from any location or while on the move. Like personal computers, mobile devices can be affected by malicious software designed to compromise your information.
Therefore, it is important to make sure any app you install on your mobile devices, including apps that connect to your My Health Record, are authentic and can be trusted to do what they claim.
The way we interact with our mobile devices sometimes means we make quick decisions which can significantly increase the chance of compromising personal information and privacy.
