Tip #1

Turn off your phone’s Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS when you are not using them. These features can be turned on remotely through programs like “FlexiSpy” or “TheTruthSpy.” Turning these features off will protect the device from being tracked by other people who have access to those programs as well.

Tip #2

Put a passcode on your phone that is unique and hard to guess. Do not use something obvious like three sequential numbers. A long password made up of letters, symbols and numbers would work better. Remember that this password should only be used for one device at a time so if someone gets hold of it they won’t gain access to all your other devices as well.

Tip #3

Perform regular updates for the phone’s operating system in order to get rid of security vulnerabilities that hackers might exploit. Even though this is not always necessary, it helps protect against threats.

Tip #4

Install an anti virus program on your device and make sure that you are updated with the latest virus definitions. This will help keep any viruses from harming your mobile phone while also keeping you safe from spyware and malware which can go undetected by some antivirus programs out there.

Tip #5

Do not click on any link that you are unsure of. This is the simplest way to keep your device safe from malware.

Tip #6

Add trusted contacts to your phone’s contact list. These people will be able to install software onto the device for its protection when it needs an update without having access to all data stored on it. For example, if someone tries accessing sensitive information such as personal photos or videos while they have access, they won’t succeed since those items are located in another folder and cannot be accessed by anyone who doesn’t know where this other folder is located within the system settings.

Tip #7

If you have lost your password, install software on another compatible device that can help find your password again so that access can be regained without having to restart the entire process with factory settings.

SMS text messages and instant messaging are perhaps the most popular forms of communication around, but they can also be easy to hack. In fact, a simple code-cracking program running on your Android device can reveal all of your private phone conversations (in plain text). Likewise, anyone who has physical access to your smartphone can easily pull off a “man in the middle” attack, snooping on your data as they see fit. This is only one of many examples where your phone and personal data are able to be compromised. Using these tips above, we hope that you are able to maintain the utmost protection on your mobile device.
