A privacy and security audit for your phone.
5/1/2018 12:00:00 AM
Biggest understatement of the year: we use our phones for just about everything. Whether we’re catching up with that long-lost friend who’s out to stay a little lost, snagging last minute gifts we forgot about on our way to a baby shower, finally beating that last level of Candy Crush, using Google Maps to get from point A to point B, comparing our selfies to famous artwork, or even just calling people – we share and promote a lot of personal information via our favorite handheld electronic devices.
Given all of that, it’s no surprise that all of this information in one place makes your phone a great target for third parties to 1) learn more about you and your habits, and 2) look for security weaknesses to exploit. Take a few steps to ensure the privacy and security you expect to have on your phone!
It’s also worth revisiting these settings periodically because updates to applications or changes in features have been known to reopen sharing you thought you’d closed.
