Today, most mobile banking connections are made through cell-phone Internet browsers. It's a popular way to do your mobile banking because it's safe and convenient. By using the cellular network, all the information transmitted and received by your phone is encrypted, and you're also protected by the bank's own layers of security.
The basic rules of security that apply to online banking apply to mobile banking security through your phone's browser. For example, you should make sure you're doing business on a secure website. Ideally, it should begin with “https://”. (See Make Sure Your Banking Web Site Is Secure.) You also should navigate to the site yourself rather than clicking on links in emails, unless you're absolutely sure the email is legitimate.
