How to Lock Down Your Android Smartphone

Jul 20, 2011

Your handset probably contains lots of personal information-e-mail addresses, photos, phone contacts, Facebook and Twitter apps, etc. The accumulation of this valuable data makes Smartphones a tempting target for cybercriminals. In fact, android phones are already being hit with Trojans and malware. Consider your Smartphone a mini mobile computer that requires the same security precautions as your laptop or desktop PC.

If you have an Android phone, you should install an anti-virus program on it. Besides scanning for malware, mobile anti-virus apps may support such features as a remote wipe (so you can securely remove all data stored on the phone if you lose it), GPS tracking (for locating your phone if you misplace it), and SMS spam blocking.

If you would like assistance selecting and installing an anti-virus app contact MTI today.
