    This part of the year is a popular time for people to buy their electronic gadgets, including smartphones. With this in mind, three major smartphone platforms – iOS, Android, and Windows Phone – have all been updated with new versions for this year’s shopping season.

    To give users an overview of this development, this month’s Monthly Mobile Review focuses on the new security features in each of these updates – namely, iOS 6, Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), and Windows Phone 8.

    Apple’s iOS 6 primarily focuses on improvements to the user’s personal data, with settings that control which apps have access to your information, and can even control what kind of information each app has access to. Similarly, Jelly Bean’s security improvements include an integrated scanner for malicious apps, as well as improvements in how Android displays the permissions an app is asking for. Not to be outdone, Windows 8 for mobile offers a multi-layer protection and boasts three key security features.

    In addition to looking at the mobile platforms, we also examined the security of using near-field communication (NFC) and discussed tips that consumers can follow to use NFC securely.
