How to Secure Your Mobile Device in 5 Steps

The rapidly changing of technology and portability of mobile devices, have forced people to heavily rely on these products. With these increased functionalities, mobile devices carry out several our day-to-day activities, like: surfing the web, booking appointments, setting up reminders, sharing files, instant messaging, video calling, and mobile banking. Given all these applications, mobile devices are vulnerable to online threats and are also susceptible to physical attacks due to their portability. Some of the security threats include malware specifically designed for mobile devices: worms, spyware, unauthorized access, phishing, and theft. Here are some steps that will help you minimize the exposure of your mobile device to digital threats. USE STRONG PASSWORDS Strong passwords coupled with biometric features, such as fingerprint authenticators, make unauthorized access nearly impossible. Your passwords should be eight or more characters long and contain alphanumeric characters. If your mobile device allows two-factor authentication, don’t hesitate to use it. You don’t want to be subject to unforeseen attacks. Add a passcode, PIN, or pattern lock. This helps protect your data from an attacker who gets ahold of your phone, even if the app developer didn’t properly secure the data. Use different passwords for sites and apps. If you use the same passwords for banking, social media, email, etc., then a hacker only needs to figure out one password to gain access to your identity. You can choose when you want to change your password, but don’t forget to change your password at least every 90 days, three months … ENSURE PUBLIC OR FREE WI-FI IS PROTECTED Everybody loves free Wi-Fi, but free could turn expensive in a...

How to Encrypt your Android device

        Encryption does more than bar a person from accessing information on your cell phone, which the lock screen does. Think of the lock screen as a lock on a door: Without the key, uninvited guests can't come in and steal all your belongings. Encrypting your data takes protection a step further. It makes the information unreadable, useless … even if somehow a hacker gets through the lock screen. Software and hardware vulnerabilities that admit hackers are found from time to time, though they're usually quickly fixed. It's also possible for determined attackers to hack lock screen passwords. The benefits of strong encryption are the extra protection it provides for your personal information. Device encryption is not a one-stop solution for protecting all your data and information from prying eyes, especially when you are sending data over the internet. Instead, device encryption converts all the data stored on your phone into a form that can only be read with the correct credentials. Once encrypted, your music, photos, apps, and account data can’t be read without first unjumbling the information using a unique key. There’s a fair bit of stuff going on behind the scenes, where a user password is converted into a key that is stored to keep it secure from software attacks. This key is then required to encrypt and decrypt files, sort of like those alphabet cypher puzzles that scramble up letters. The downside to encrypting your mobile data is, at least on Android devices, it takes longer for you to log in to your device because, each time you do it decrypts the...
