9 Common-Sense Tips to Secure Your Smartphone !!

download (1).jpg

Keeping your property safe often comes down to common sense, and your smartphone is no different than your PC or home.


Taking basic precautions will go a long way towards saving you time and money.


Here are the 9 tips to boost the Security of your smartphone and what you store on it.



1. Use a pin, password or pattern to lock your phone.

Setting this up is very easy just go to your Settings->Location & Security Settings and follow the instructions.


All Innjoo devices support this feature there so always you are in safe hands with Innjoo - Be You.

2. Download apps only from trusted stores.

If you’re browsing for an APP use places such as Google Play, make sure you check ratings and reviews if they are available, and read the app’s privacy policy to see exactly what phone features it will have access to if you download / install.  


Also, as basic counter measure you can visit the Applications Settings and check not to install apps from unknown sources.


Innjoo provides the secure Inn Store on all its Innjoo devices to the iFans, also this rule applies to anything you download from Inn Store.



3. Back up your data.

This is more about protecting and restoring your information should disaster strike. For example, you can save your music, pictures, videos and documents to the Laptop/PC or the Cloud service.


Innjoo provides iFans with the Inn Cloud option which supports the Backup of your Contacts / phone book just in case you lost your SIM card or phone memory gets corrupted.



4. Keep your operating system and apps updated.

There are typically periodic updates to both of these that not only add new features, but also offer tightened security.


Innjoo team is always working hard to ensure you get the most Stable release NOT the most Recent release, which ensures your Innjoo experience is safe & sound.



5. Log out of sites after you make a payment.

If you bank or shop from your smartphone, log out of those sites once your transactions are complete. Other tips include not storing your usernames and passwords on your phone and always avoid transactions while you are on public Wi-Fi / Hot Spot.



6. Turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® when not in use.

You think of them as ways to connect to something, but thieves can use them to connect to your device and access your data.


This is the most basic thumb of rule for any Smartphone user, people tend to forget to Turn Off the Bluetooth & WiFi after use.



7. Avoid giving out personal information, at any cost.

That text message that looks to be from your bank may not be. If you get requests via email or text for account information from any business, contact the business directly to confirm the request. The same advice goes for tapping links in unsolicited emails or texts that you recieve.



8. Install an Android security app.

For a monthly fee, you can upgrade to a Premium Security App and you’ll get App Alert to learn what personal data your apps are accessing and recovery features to remotely locate, lock, alarm or wipe a lost or misplaced device. Most of the free alternatives are not worth risking your valuable data especially if the device is being used as BYOD.



9. Protect your investment.

Research shows that 7 out of 10 people lose their device, don’t let this happen to you be alert and proactive with your smartphones all the time.


All the very best from Innjoo - Be You.
