Smartphone Security is one of the most talked about topics these days!
In the current era, each and every one of us is concerned about our Smartphone security. Nowadays, since smart phones are available at a very affordable price, so even the low-class people can be seen with the latest mobile phones present in the market.
There is no doubt that smartphone has become our necessity. But, we often forget to take care of it and hence, it deteriorates slowly! It is considered that Android Phones are less vulnerable to phishing, malware and such kind of viruses but it is not that true! Even the iPhone can be cracked so easily by the hackers sitting between your device and network. As far as the Android Smartphone is concerned, the older versions are more endangered than the newer ones and you must do something in order to keep it healthy and safe.
Here, we are giving some remarkable tips for maintaining your Smartphone:
#TIP 1: Choosing Vendors who provide you the latest Android Patches
If you are thinking of buying a new smartphone for you, then you must first choose your vendor selectively. There are very less vendors in the Smartphone market, who take care of your Smartphone Security. Some of the popular examples include: (Rank wise)
These mobile vendors ensure you the freshest updates from the Android Authority. Moreover, it means a lot! So the main thing is that – You must possess the latest Android Version on your Android Phone. Believe me or not, but this very thing is going to help you critically!
#TIP 2: Install the apps from Google Play Store only and nowhere else
This is something which mostly people ignore and do not find it important though. But the apps which we install from unreliable and unauthenticated sources can harm your phone to a severe level. This is because- The Google Play Store scans every app which you are installing on your phone. But the unverified third-party apps like: Tubemate, GB Whatsapp, YO Whatsapp can have negative impact on the security of your Android Phone.
Hence, always keep those apps in your phone which are installed from verified sources such as: Google Play store.
#TIP 3: Use a good Antivirus for your phone
Since users know that most of the Virus, Malware and Phishing spams etc travel over the network, so it becomes the responsibility of the user to track them and remove them. We cannot resist any smartphone from using Internet. Hence, what we can do is to use a good Antivirus program for your mobile that works well.
According to the analysis:
- Avast Mobile Security & Antivirus is the best free Antivirus available till date for your smart phone.
- Norton Mobile Security is the best premium Antivirus Software
Among the above, Avast is very good at scanning, detecting malware and removing it. But the Phone Tracker feature is not so impressive.
Well the users can choose the Antivirus according to his/her convenience.
#TIP 4: Turn off Internet/WIFI when not needed
It may sounds weird, but it really plays a significant role in keeping smartphone healthy and wealthy. The main reason behind this is- While our phone is connected to Internet, it is vulnerable to attacks and malwares much more as compared to when our Internet is simply off. Moreover, a device connected to the network can be hacked by the hackers.
Hence, the users should try to keep their Internet connections off when not required.
#TIP 5: Uninstall the unnecessary and unused apps
Sometimes, we install large amount of unnecessary applications on our mobile phone. But this habit is not at all a good way for the phone security and maintenance.
We should un-install those apps, which are unnecessary and consume a lot of space of our phone without any reason. Also, we ought to be careful while giving permissions.
