How apps can be used to your cellphone

Dominic Cull, Regulatory Advisor at Ellipsis Regulatory Solutions, says that people are increasingly vulnerable to cellphone tapping despite these devices having more advanced security features than before.

Speaking on #NightTalk with Gugs Mhlungu and Sizwe Dhlomo, Cull says that despite cellphone manufacturers trying their best to secure devices, there are people who are trying to find vulnerabilities to access people's devices.

Cull says that cellphone users today are more susceptible to having their devices tapped because they do not have real real knowledge of their devices. This is unlike the early days of cellphone usage, when the devices were mostly used by people with deep knowledge in coding technologies.
