Security threat in the paradigm of BYOD creates a great opportunity for hackers or attackers to find new attacks or vulnerabilities that could possibly exploit the students’ mobile devices and gains valuable data from them. A survey was conducted in learning the current awareness of security and privacy importance in BYOD for higher education in Malaysia. Based on the analysis of this survey, it demonstrates that the trend of BYOD in Malaysia has begun. Thoroughly, the survey results have been proven that the current basic fundamental security and privacy awareness and knowledge on mobile devices or applications is important in order to protect their mobile devices or data.
