Summary/Abstract: The numerous benefits of access to mobile Internet sparked great interest in wireless solutions, fostering their dynamic growth seen in recent years. The opportunities and increasing usage of mobile devices necessitate the development of new wireless standards to improve the quality of services. All technologies are systematically developed due to the need to ensure Interoperability between them, the need to increase the transmission speed and the need for efficient use of bandwidth. Activities undertaken with mobile solutions – in order to be widely used and developed – must be reliable and secure. That is why more and more attention is paid not only to improvements in transmission parameters and increased functionality of devices, but also to ensuring a high level of system protection. Mobile devices are often used to store and transmit confidential data, which is also confirmed by the results of the survey into the use of mobile devices, which is the topic of this article. The authors stress the importance of the problem of safety in mobile devices usage in the light of rapid development of new technologies and the increase in network threats.
