What would you do without your cellphone? It’s likely you’d feel as lost as a fish out of water. Cellular technology is your umbilical cord to … well, just about everything in your world! Here are some tips for protecting one of your most important day-to-day tools:
Change your password once a month. Protect sensitive data that’s on your phone through a passcode that you change at least once each month —more frequently if you have a mobile wallet or pay with your phone.
Connect your phone to the cloud. Backing up your phone data to the cloud will save you tons of grief should your phone suffer damage or be stolen.
Update your apps frequently. Set up automatic reminders, if you need them. Developers are constantly updating apps to deal with security issues or bugs that may pop up. When you install a new app or update one you already have, choose settings that will alert you when an updated app is available for you to download.
