I think if you’re going to update your phone, you will have done it by now. Lots of folks rushed out to get new iPhones and new Android devices in recent months, so it’s not surprising that you’re going to have to get your new phones secure and locked down in proper modern defensive postures. That’s where apps come in. When I got my Kindle so many years ago, the first thing I did was go out and get a security app for it off Amazon’s store. If you’re an iPhone or Android user, then there are lots of great ways to take the extra step of security you need in this day and age of smartphones. Here are some great security apps for your iOS and Android devices.
It’s pretty strange that we live in a world where you have to make sure viruses don’t get on your phone of all things. Especially considering that 15 years ago, or even less, a portable phone was a phone that could barely make telephone calls. Now they can’t make phone calls, but they can do pretty much everything else that you’d want online. Anything involving the Internet means anti-virus software, and anything involving your phone means lock-down and remote-wiping capabilities, so make sure you keep both of those on your phone.Technorati Tags: android security apps, apps, iphone security apps, phone security, securing your new iphone, security apps, security apps for iphone and android, smartphone security, usa today
