How is security on Mobile Devices? Been tempted to buy some stuff through my Mobile Phone but not sure if it is encrypted like on a normal PC.

Through a browser or an app? For the former you should only purchase from websites that use SSL (look for a green padlock in the URL bar) as you would on a PC. For the latter, only use apps that are provided by recognised companies (and preferably redirect to PayPal).

What about others things like accommodation and airfares?

 

I use a Windows Phone and the browser is crap ,probably use apps and such.

Same rules as ios and Android, use official apps and if the app looks dodgy don't load it.
