Here are the Tips to Secure your Mobile Handset

With the latest development PTA issued six tips to secure mobile handset which are given as below;
  1. Lock phone using a “Pin/Password” to avoid its misuse
  2. Install Apps only from “trusted Apps stores”
  3. Turn-off Bluetooth connection, after the usage
  4. Always encrypt your data on internal and external media
  5. Timely installs updates/ patches
  6. Always use a VPN on public Wi-Fi / un-trusted network
One of the first things suggested, is to navigate into your device’s security settings and enable a pass lock. Pattern unlocks and pins are some of the most secure. If you want to take it one step further then it also recommends changing passcode regularly.
Whilst it can often be a nice idea to download and install apps that are not found on the App Store or Google Play Store, these apps tend to be the ones that are less secure.
Bluetooth is best known as the wireless technology that powers hands-free earpieces and connects your phone to audio, navigation, and electronics through the Internet of Things (IoT).
As convenient as Bluetooth can be for productivity and comfort, it can also present major security risks. Therefore, it is recommended that Bluetooth may be turned off once used.
Since access to public WiFi is a necessity nowadays, using a VPN to encrypt your connections is vital. The thing with public WiFi connections is that you have no way of knowing which networks are really secure. Whatever public WiFi hotspot you are trying to access, a VPN will do its best to encrypt your connections.
