Tips for your tablet or Smartphone

Tablets and smartphones are everywhere, and with this next generation of mobile computing comes a new generation of fraudsters. Here are three top tips for keeping your phones and tablets safe.

  1. Set a strong password, include numbers and punctuation to make it really difficult to guess.
  2. Beware of fake apps. There are lots around and they can unleash malware and steal personal data from your phone. To prevent this, download a mobile security app from a legitimate company.
  3. Only visit SSL encrypted sites when you use Wifi. Without SSL encryption, your data is open for anyone to see – and steal. And if you own a website, you need to make sure you offer your site visitors mobile compatible SSL security.
