Using Mobile Devices Securely

  • Protect your mobile as it contains highly confidential information including bank details and personal identification.
  • Always lock your device with a pin or password. Consider using a finger scanner and/or facial recognition.
  • Only install apps from trusted sources and read the terms and conditions of use.
  • Review app settings monthly including app permissions that can provide access to sensitive areas of your device (i.e. contacts, files, microphone, camera).
  • Remove apps you haven’t used in the last 3 months.
  • Use the ‘Find my iPhone’ service or ‘Android Device Manager’ to prevent loss or theft of mobile devices.
