Recently, developing and implementing phishing attacks require little or no technical skill and at minimal cost. This uprising has resulted in an unprecedented rise in the number of phishing attacks experienced daily on the World Wide Web. Most available web anti-phishing tools are designed to resist attacks on desktop webpages. These techniques are unlikely to work for mobile webpages. The reason behind this is that mobile webpages differ in content, structure, and behaviours of mobile Internet users. This paper presents an indepth analysis and comparison of KAYO and MobiFish, two existing mobile webpage anti-phishing techniques proposed in recent years. Our survey provides an observation on each scheme with a scope for further research. Furthermore, we proffer a clear explanation on the need for mobile-specific antiphishing schemes.
