Default snoopware

Please Login to Remove!

So I take it Blackberryies aren't victims of snoopware? I can't even find the term anywhere using search.

Also couldn't find the word "security" on the FAQ listing page... I'm starting to think maybe Blackberries are just terribly secure and this is a non-issue? Could it be true, or am I missing the forest for the trees on this one?

I'm such a newb I am not even sure I am trying to find the correct terms but if you know what I'm talking about, let me know some new search ideas and I'd be happy to keep looking.

Correct.

The BlackBerry device is arguably the most secure mobile device on the planet.
This is the main reason why BlackBerry devices are the choice for many government agencies and large corporations.

Deedee, correct.

BlackBerrys are not security problems. That has been RIM's greatest selling point, and the main reason you find governments and the CIA/FBI in the US using them.

The largest issue with security on the BB has been that is it is TOO secure, and you will find users here complaining of wipes and loss of data when they have entered the password 10 times incorrectly.

Thanks... I had a feeling this was the case but was having trouble confirming it without posting. I feel SO smug about being a Blackberry owner now. Well I already did, truth be told, but now I do even MORE. Pity the non-BB "smart phone" users out there my fellow BBers - they're truly at a disadvantage and good number of them don't even know it. TSK.

Check here for BB security issues. After reviewing this list, going back to 2004, there just is not too many issues...and that is a good thing.
