Here is some advice on how to enhance your online security for mobile phones and tablets.
Use a password
Make sure that your mobile phone/tablet is secured with a password. Also change the pre-set standard codes to prevent unauthorised use of your phone or tablet should you lose it.
Keep your mobile unit updated
Update your mobile unit regularly to close security holes.
Install only apps you trust
Be aware when you download and install apps – they may contain malware. Download only apps you trust from the reputed app markets, such as Google Play, App Store or Windows Market.
Turn off Bluetooth
When Bluetooth is activated, other users in the vicinity may access your data. Disable Bluetooth whenever you are not using it.
Access only secure wireless networks
Otherwise you run the risk of your password or e-mails being monitored. Use only networks that you know are secure (encrypted).
