Abstract—There is no doubt about what exactly cloud computing is, but the explosive growth and improvement of mobile devices and applications with the emerging of cloud computing, introduced the concept of mobile cloud computing to be as the future potential technology for different mobile services. The use of mobile cloud computing overcomes performance related obstacles e.g. bandwidth, storage capacity and battery life, as well as environment related issues e.g. availability, scalability and heterogeneity. Despite the amazing advancement and huge advantages achieved by mobile cloud computing, the users of mobile cloud computing are still below expectations because of the associated security and privacy risks. These risks are playing significant role in preventing single user and organizations to adopt mobile cloud computing environment. This paper reviews the concept of mobile cloud computing as well as the security issues inherent within the context of mobile application and cloud computing with more focus on the security considerations to adopt mobile cloud computing.
