Whether it is the data in your smart phone or the device itself, there always is a need for protection and security. The valuable data and information you have on your device has high vulnerability of getting hacked and transferred. To protect the valuable files and information you will have to employ some kind of security before the device can be accessed. This prevents anyone but yourself to access the files and information on your device. There is a default security on your mobile device that can help enable the protection to your files and information on the device. Although this might seem adequate to some, using third party apps to have additional security is much preferred. Using third party apps not only help you enhance your security level but also arms you with additional safety provisions like anti theft alert, anti mal-ware and apps optimization.

Talking about anti-theft alert some apps help the device owner find the location of the phone if lost or stolen, through GPS tracking system. Even the cheapest smartphone can have an anti theft app. However, the stolen or lost phones could be tracked on the computers only if they are synced with the device. Anti-malware or antivirus can also prove useful when it comes to protecting the software of the device and the files from getting corrupt. Anti-malware is especially necessary to those who download a lot of files from unknown sources. Although it is advisable to download files only from trusted sites there may come a point in time when the users get temped to do otherwise. In such case, it is best to have precaution or risk losing your stored data or possible damage to the device itself.

The feature of app optimization is usually found in any android mobile and not on other software using devices. Due to the multi-tasking nature of android cell phones there are apps that help in apps optimization. In this way the apps are temporarily running within the phone taking up fraction of space on the RAM of the device. While some of the best mobiles have pre-installed apps and programs that allow the users to make their device secure and protect the files. There are lots of free online apps which offer useful security features.

There are some rules that may require the attention of the average phone users to avoid such security breach at the first place. Never leave the WI-FI or Bluetooth turned on when it is not in use. This avoids people from accessing your device’s content wirelessly. Back up the data on your phone on cloud storage or your computer so that it’s easily retrievable. Never forget to logout from a site after you’ve made payment. Connecting to unknown Wi-Fi signal could increase the risk of hacking as such signals are used to access the files and information on your device. Logging out of site used in payments is important because the credential entered in the site can be used by the sites to extract further balance from your account onto theirs.
