Consumers still have security concerns when it comes to mobile commerce. And apparently, they’re not the only ones. The UK’s Financial Conduct Authority is going to be reviewing banks that offer mobile services to check they have proper IT systems and policies to protect consumers.
However, security concerns are not consumers’ biggest when it comes to mobile commerce.
