Cyber Security Tip: REMOVE these from your laptop, tablet or smartphone

Sep 5, 2023

Like it or not, device manufacturers LOVE to fill your brand-new PC, tablet or phone full of “free” applications like games, music and photo apps and more (manufacturers actually get paid to install these with the devices they sell).

But outdated apps are a breeding ground for vulnerabilities, so if you’re not using a particular application on a regular basis, it’s best to REMOVE it completely. This is also why we source and set up all workstations and PCs for our clients – we actually remove the junk and configure the security setup so it’s ready to go.

If you haven’t done so, go through your phone, laptop and other devices and uninstall applications you’re not using. Need help? Give us a call 480-999-5468
