How to secure your Android device
06 May 2018
Have you ever found posts on your social media account that you didn’t make, only to find the culprit grinning at you with your phone in their hand? Securing your device can help avoid some embarrassing situations! Not to mention more sinister ones.
With so much personal data stored on our devices these days, it makes sense to keep our information safe. With just a few simple steps, you can reduce the risk of others accessing your phone or tablet. Most devices have some sort of protection built in such as an access code like a PIN number or a pattern. If your device falls into someone else’s hands, it's harder for anyone to use it.
