We do almost everything on with our cell phones from entertainment, to payment services, and consuming news and content by a simple subscription to various services. In fact, by the end of 2019, 5.2 billion people subscribed to mobile services, accounting for 67% of the global population.

But there is a dark side to the convenient capabilities of mobile subscriptions – Missing data, unauthorised payments, illicit spam, intrusive mobile marketing and advertising fraud.
