Ninety-four percent of IT professionals expect mobile security attacks to become more frequent, while 79 percent report increased difficulty securing devices.[1]

That’s one of the 12 surprising mobile technology statistics published by Mobile Business Insights.[2]

The report also notes that "for every eight minutes users spend on smartphones, seven of those minutes are spent in apps." [3] And users spend an average of about five hours per day on their device.[4]

The generational impact of this change is highlighted by the fact that most 16 to 24 year old smartphone users now spend as much time on their mobile device as on all other devices combined.[5]

Advertising money is following the trend in a big way. Mobile video ad spending is the fastest-growing ad format, up 142 percent in the second quarter of 2017.[3]
