In today’s world, mobile security involves protecting portable devices such as laptops, tablets, smart watches, and phones against cyber threats. It is becoming more critical these days to protect our smartphones and smart devices because we store a lot of personal, and sensitive data on such devices.
We keep installing different apps in our phones, without even knowing that they can be harmful to us. Are you going to download the next app? Please consider these 10 things to keep your phone, personal information, and your privacy safe and secure:
Check app’s number of downloads – How many people already downloaded it?
Check app’s reviews (stars + number of reviews) – Does it have many positive reviews?
If the app’s reviews are overwhelming negative, don’t download it.
If the app needs more permissions (than it should), don’t download it.
It is always recommended to download the app from Google Play or App Store directly. Ignore downloading from a dirty corner of the Internet.
