How to keep your device secure from online threats

Mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets are an integral part of many people's everyday lives and are widely used around the world. They allow users to stay connected, shop online, access information and much more, but this also means that they have sensitive elements such as personal information, banking and other data stored. Therefore, it is essential to ensure the protection of devices against viruses, privacy invasions and various online risks.


To ensure the security of stored information, we have some tips for you:

  1. Update the operating system frequently, as updates often fix security vulnerabilities.

  2. Only download apps from trusted sources like the App Store or Google Play Store and check the permissions requested by apps before installing them. There are malicious apps distributed through unofficial app stores.

  3. Control who can see your personal information and interact with you through privacy settings.

  4. Disable location functionality if you don't need it to prevent malicious people from knowing where you are.

  5. Avoid unsecured Wi-Fi connections, as well as clicking on suspicious links and/or downloading from untrustworthy sources. Unsecured public Wi-Fi networks can be used to intercept information sent and received, as well as links and apps can be a source of malware and other security threats.

  6. Install mobile security software such as an antivirus that protects against malware, spyware and viruses.

  7. Keep your backup data in a safe place, such as an external storage drive or the cloud, so that it can be recovered if your device is lost or damaged.

  8. Be careful when sharing personal information such as email addresses, passwords and bank card numbers. Always check reliability before sharing.

  9. Use a strong, one-time passcode, as well as factor authentication such as passcodes sent via text message or biometrics, and configure your device's lock screen to require a passcode after a short period of inactivity.

  10. Use data encryption to protect confidential data.

In short, security on devices is vital in preserving any and all sensitive information as well as preventing their loss, as they are susceptible to a wide range of threats. By adopting appropriate security criteria, it is possible to fully guarantee the device, including the privacy of registered data.
