  2. Select ‘Settings’
  3. Select ‘Location and Security’ , or ‘Security’ on some phones
  4. Choose ‘Set Up Screen Lock’
  5. Choose ‘Pattern’     Note: patterns are better because they’re harder to guess

Lost your phone ? Find it !

  1. Install a phone location tracking app for example:  ‘Where’s my Droid’
  2. For more security, try applications like WaveSecure  or Mobile Defense


Virus protection:

  • You can install free virus protection apps like Avast! , AVG  and others
  • Don’t install untrusted applications from untrusted sites.
  • If there are available updates, make sure to keep your phone updated

Protecting yourself while connected:

  • If you’re using 3G connection, no one will be able to see the data being sent
  • If you’re connected to a public Wi-Fi network, double check the access point name
  • Attackers can spy on you if and only if they are connected to the same network as you are
  • Make sure you’re connection is encrypted by checking for the HTTPS keyword in the address bar


Encrypt your phone data:

  • Some Android devices have this feature, not all.
  • Recommended if you are going to a crowded place and fear you might lose your phone.
  • To enable it:

1. Go to “Settings”

2. Select “Storage”

3. You’ll find “SD card encryption” and “Storage Encryption”

4. By enabling any one of them, you’ll be required to enter a password.

5. Now, each time you start your phone, you’ll be asked to enter the password.
