Yesterday, in part 1 of this series, we looked at ways to help keep your Android phone safe from attack. Today, we’ve got even more useful tips.

Secure Internet Networks

Avoid public WiFi for important tasks, such as accessing your bank account or making online payments. Sharing the same network with other people turns your phone into a target and hackers can easily get your private information and even passwords.

There are some apps you can use to protect your phone, even more, making your connection encrypted. Install a WiFi Protector if you need to use a public WiFi network for risky tasks.

Security Apps

There are multiple security apps you can install on your device. Some of them come from popular computer anti-virus software brands, such as Norton, Bitdefender, Avast, Avira, and others. Security apps will make sure you avoid downloading and installing malware on your smartphone and protect you from browsing dangerous websites. Some of these apps are free, while others have premium versions as well. They also come with phone cleaners and other useful features you can use to optimize your smartphone.

Backup

Don’t forget to backup your phone data. This will help you retrieve the information in case of a theft or hacking. It is best to backup your data to a cloud storage, such as Dropbox or Google Drive. There are multiple apps you can use for this, and some Android devices even have Backup apps already installed. Make sure you automate the backing up process because if you choose to manually backup your phone, you might forget about it.

Tracking and Remote Wiping Your Phone

In case your phone is stolen, you can track it via GPS if this is already enabled on the device. There are a bunch of tracking apps on Android, that will help you locate your lost or stolen phone.

Also, you can wipe your device remotely, in case it was stolen, there’s no way you can get it back and don’t want the thief to get access to your data. Check out Google Play from some apps that can do this for you. Do some research before installing these apps and install only verified tracking apps on your phone.

We hope these tips and tricks will help you protect your Android phone from hacking and theft. Secure your phone today, by installing the right apps and adjusting its settings, and increase its protection.
