Ten Steps to Smartphone Security

  1. Be smart on open Wi-Fi networks. When you access a Wi-Fi network that is open to the public, your phone can be an easy target to cybercriminals. You should limit your use of public hotspots and instead use protected Wi-Fi from a network operator you trust or mobile wireless connection to reduce your risk of exposure, especially when accessing personal or sensitive information. Always be aware when clicking web links and be particularly cautious if you are asked to enter account or log-in information.

  2. Avoid making your personal information readily accessible by setting PINs and passwords. To prevent unauthorized access on your phone, set a password on your home screen. You should configure your phone to automatically lock after five minutes or less while your phone is in idle. Never share your PIN, password or security question with anyone or save it to your phone.

  3. Only install apps from trusted sources. Before downloading an app, research to ensure the app is legitimate. Checking legitimacy of an app may include such thing as: checking reviews & confirming the legitimacy of the app store. Some apps from trusted sources contain malware that once installed can steal information, install viruses, and cause harm to your phone's contents. There are also apps that warn you if any security risks exist on your phone.

  4. Monitor your accounts and records on a regular basis.

  5. Wipe data on your old phone before you donate, resell or recycle it. Your smartphone contains personal data that you want to keep private when you dispose your old phone. To protect your privacy, completely erase data off of your phone.

  6. Do not modify your smartphone's security settings. Do not alter security settings for convenience. Tampering with your phone's factory settings, jailbreaking, or rooting your phone undermines the built-in security features offered by your wireless service and smartphone, while making it more susceptible to an attack.

  7. Accept updates and patches to your smartphone's software. You should keep your phone's operating system software up-to-date by enabling automatic updates or accepting updates when prompted from your service provider, operating system provider, device manufacturer, or application provider. By keeping your operating system current, you reduce the risk of exposure to cyber threats.

  8. Backup and secure your data. You should backup all of the data stored on your phone – such as your contacts, documents, and photos. These files can be stored on your computer, on a removal storage card, or in the cloud. This will allow you to conveniently restore the information to your phone should it be lost, stolen, or otherwise erased.

  9. Report a stolen smartphone. The major wireless service providers, in coordination with the FCC, have established a stolen phone database. If your phone is stolen, you should report the theft to your local law enforcement authorities and then register the stolen phone with your wireless provider. This will provide notice to all the major wireless service providers that the phone has been stolen and will allow to remote "bricking" of the phone so that it cannot be activated on any wireless network without your permission.

  10. Log out and close your browser when you are not using the internet on your phone.
