To prevent this from happening to you, you don’t need to hesitate in setting up a password that is kind of complex for anybody to access your device. Making use of scanning and facial identification is very good as you are the only one that’s still permitted to access your device.


Mind the Way You Connect to Free Wifi and Bluetooth

Most people her that love free things, always jump into any free wifi they come across with and it’s very bad because you don’t really know whose wifi you are connecting to, it might be of a hacker and every details in your device is gone before you know it.

Some people normally use hotels or conference centers wifi to browse. I don’t have a problem with that but you have to make sure that those wifi are highly protected before using though it’s hard to see top hotels and conference centers with unprotected Wifi. Be very careful how you connect your phone to free public wifi in areas like shopping centers, airport, parks etc. The more you reduce the way you connect to public wifi, the lesser risk of hackers connecting to your device.

Make Use of Anti Virus App

There are some bad hackers that can hack your Smartphone and still information and password by using malware. So for you to be safe from this, you need to get an antivirus app. There are a lot of antivirus app like Avast, McAfee and Panda that will protect you from any hacking threat.

Beware of Spam Emails

Most hackers normally use email spamming to get control of your device. Sometimes they will send you a message that contain link and once you click on all those links been sent to you, every information about you will be reveal to them. So you need to ignore those messages for your own good.



Take heed and stay safe from the malicious acts of hackers. These days phone numbers are linked to bank details. That is the more reason why you should be very careful with your android phone and make sure it is hack-proof.

In addition to the above mentioned mobile phone security tips, always back up the content of your phone to the cloud storage. This is a form of safety in case you lose your device or hackers maliciously wipe the contents, you can easily retrieve them. I recommend Google cloud storage.
