Basic tips to Keep you Mobile and It's Information Safe
"Your mobile and your personal information should always be secured."
Your mobile and your personal information should always be secured. Here are the common tips you can follow to keep your pieces of information and mobile secure:
1. Avoid giving out personal information:
We receive many text message that looks to be similar to your bank but this may not be true. If you get such messages, requests via email, or text for account information from any business, contact the business directly to confirm the request rather than opening and confirming the text messages.
Also, avoid tapping links in unsolicited emails or texts.
2. Download apps only from trusted stores:
3. Log out of sites after you make a payment:
If you bank or shop from your smartphone, log out of those sites once your transactions are complete. Other tips include not storing your usernames and passwords on your phone and avoiding transactions while you are on public Wi-Fi. This will keep your mobile safe.
4. Turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when not in use:
As we all know nowadays we try to connect Wi-Fi everywhere we go but that should be avoided. You think of them as ways to connect to something, but thieves can use them to connect to your device and access files.
5. Use a pin, password, or pattern to lock your phone:
This is a very important and easy thing you can do. For most Android™ devices, go to your Location & Security Settings for instructions, and for IOS users, you can find these functions in the General options of their settings.
