Protecting information on your smartphone

Your BlackBerry smartphone includes features that help protect your information from malicious applications such as viruses and spyware. The information that you might want to protect includes your contacts, calendar entries, email messages, instant messages, and pictures.

You can download applications from the BlackBerry App World storefront or from third-party websites. You can help protect your BlackBerry smartphone from viruses and spyware by only downloading applications from trustworthy sources.

Before applications are made available on BlackBerry App World, they are tested to verify that they do not interfere with the core functionality of smartphones. At any time, RIM can remove applications from BlackBerry App World that are identified as potentially malicious or do not follow the BlackBerry App World Vendor Agreement.
