Feb 6, 2024

This week, here are 10 easy tips to mobile phone security:

1. Lock your device with a PIN or password and never leave it unattended in public. 2. Uninstall apps you don’t use.
3. ONLY download apps from trusted sources.
4. Keep your phone’s operating system updated.
5. Install antivirus software.
6. Use your phone’s “find me” feature to prevent loss or theft.
7. Cover the camera with a camera sticker when not in use.
8. Back up your data.
9. Encrypt the data if you have sensitive info stored on it.
10. Don’t click on links or attachments from unsolicited e-mails or texts.

Bonus: never connect your phone to public WiFi – in fact, we find it best to leave your WiFi off so it doesn’t automagically connect to a network you don’t expect.
