Five Simple Steps to Secure Your Android Phone (eBook)

One of the most interesting features of Google’s fastest growing open source Android platform is that it offers developers the ability to build their own rich and innovative apps. Majority of these apps may be downloaded free of charge, which unfortunately spells out possible danger for some who downloaded and try out all kind of apps, as it is uncommon for cyber criminals to trojanize apps for their own gain.

The fact that Android apps are also available in third party apps stores and in the developer’s sites poses even more risk.
With all valuable data stored in your Smartphone, you should try hard to keep it save from all threats. To keep your Android-based devices secure, you should consider the following five simple steps.
Step 1: Use your Android based phone’s built in security features.
Step 2: Disable the Wi-Fi Auto Connect option.
Step 3: Consider blocking apps from stores other than Android Market
Step 4: Understand the permissions your are allowing before accepting them.
Step 5: Consider investing in an effective mobile security app.
