mobilesecurityI don’t know about you but I have started thinking more often about my phone’s security lately. Any day now someone is going to figure out how to hack into my phone. Think I am paranoid? Then take a look at these recent headlines on iOS and Android:

Search for security issues on the Microsoft phone and you will hear crickets. Apparently Microsoft does not have security issues and only about a dozen people have Microsoft phones.

We are terribly connected to our phones. This makes us vulnerable. What to do?

Practice safe phone habits. Change your password (or equivalent) on a regular basis. Be careful of the information you store on your phone. If you do keep sensitive data on your phone then use a productivity app that allows you to password your file. Research your phone’s OS and understand what your options. Be responsible. That’s about all we can do. And don’t panic.
