– as long as it’s not Jail broken, and has a pin code that will prevent physical access to device and change of setting your fine. For extra safety, make sure you own a device that can be updated to the latest version.
– avoid installing applications from third-party sources, don’t root the device, make sure the security setting is configured to scan new applications. Google is not doing a good job at analysing applications uploaded to the google play market, so there is still a chance you will get infected by a malware that was uploaded to the play store. If budget permits, install an advanced endpoint protection solution that will analyse the applications your download to determine if they perform any malicious behaviour if your not part of a business, the chance you will get access for such is very low.
8 Regular Security / Suggestion Tips for Protect Your phone from Virus
- Turn off blue tooth, or at least the auto connection feature.
- Install a reputable anti-virus appropriate for your phone.
- Set up multi-factor authentication (passwords + biometrics) .
- Don’t visit websites you don’t know,
- Don’t install applications that haven’t been thoroughly vetted and proven.
- Don’t keep important information unencrypted on the phone (I hate the idea of the pay through the phone apps that don’t have thorough enough security – and some current ones are barely passing security wise IMHO.)
- Back up everything on your phone frequently for when instead of a virus it drops in the garbage disposal or gets run over – or just encase you get a virus anyways.
- BTW don’t keep your essential info only on your phone- since they are portable they can get lost stolen broken etc. more easily than a PC, and cloud backups can prove incomplete or unreliable.
