Mobil-.puting Mobile devices are now be.e a must have entity for people in their day to day use, and are increasingly be.ing a basic .munication need. These devices are so continuously involved at work that we entrust them with all kinds of data. With the boom that mobile devices are having today, there is much vulnerability attached. Smartphones are exploited by hackers to take advantage of them, whether .mitted by stealing photographs, personal data or passwords. They can also infect the terminal with some type of malware that displays advertising while they earn profit from it. Android is, today, one of the most used mobile operating systems, therefore, more and more people are looking to take advantage of it. Here we give some tips to make your Android device a little safer. Watch What You Keep In SD Card SD cards are most unsafe way to store data because, by default, they are unencrypted. So by connecting the card to another device, one can have immediate access to all the data in it. To avoid disaster, we must take care not to store personal data, .promising photos, passwords, job data and similar information on the card. If we need to have these files, we can choose service like cloud storage, Dropbox or Google Drive itself, that keep our files encrypted and safely out of the device. Another option is to purchase a terminal that has no SD card and only have internal memory, so it will be more difficult to access such information. Do Not Save Passwords On Your Phone In many cases, it is very inconvenient to enter a password of our programs over and over again, and we tend to store on the device to avoid re-write. This is more .fortable, but too unsafe as in case of a terminal theft or security loop hole, anyone can access those passwords. Be Careful About The Origins Of The Software You Install Generally, applications downloaded from the Play Store .e clean of malware, and if any is filtered it is soon eliminated. However, you must not install Android applications and games that do not .e through, and are not signed, by the Play Store. One should never install applications of questionable reliability, as it can cause data theft. It can show what we put on the keyboard; different advertising applications can even display an individual’s location. Most terminals are infected because of applications of dubious origins. Keep The Device And Applications Updated In many cases, after a .pany publishes an application, it soon discovers security holes that will likely be used by hackers to take advantage of them. It is very important to keep the applications updated to avoid such security gaps in your devices. Block Our Device Properly By default, the Android unlock method is to slide an icon on the screen. This is totally insecure, since, to theft, are easily able to manipulate our phone. For correct terminal block, other alternatives should be place for unlock other than slider; either a pattern or a pin and even a certain length alphanumeric password (8 characters). Pay Attention To The Application Permissions All applications, when installed, have a number of access permissions, whether Inter., the Bluetooth, the screen etc. We must look to such permits and suspect if any of them seems strange, for example, that a wallpaper request access to the agenda or rack SMS. Before installing something that has doubts around it, we can write a message to the developer asking why are these certain permissions. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
