Maintain Security and Avoid The Risk of Internet Access Through Cell Phones

The first step when buying a new cell phone or device, adjust the screen lock. Depending on the mobile phone's operating system, you can set a PIN code, password or pattern to prevent others from opening your personal information.

INPHEDIA.ID - Today, as the easier we access the internet the greater the risk. Google shares a number of risk-avoiding tips when accessing the internet through cell phones.

1. The first step when buying a new cell phone or device, adjust the screen lock. Depending on the mobile phone's operating system, you can set a PIN code, password or pattern to prevent others from opening your personal information.

2. Be careful when downloading applications because some applications can contain malicious software and can damage cell phones, first read comments from other users.

Pay attention to matters relating to system requirements and privacy policies to understand what personal information the application can access. Google recommends downloading applications from official sources, including the Google Play Store on an Android device or in iTunes on the iPhone.

3. In addition, Wi-Fi networks that are open to the public or unknown can be used as a gateway to misuse of personal information.

Be careful when browsing the Internet on unknown networks, such as open Wi-Fi networks like in internet cafes. Service providers may monitor all traffic on their network, including monitoring personal information if the connection is not encrypted.

Therefore, when using public Wi-Fi, avoid entering personal information such as user names and passwords, or making transactions on the network, including banking transactions or shopping on the network.

4. If you have children, equip them with an understanding of which sites are right for their age, information they can give to others, and they also need to be equipped with an understanding of the importance of a good password or PIN.

This understanding is important so that they do not carelessly inform others. It's just as important as understanding when you provide information so they don't interact with strangers in public places.

Ask your children if they receive a message asking for personal information so parents are informed; and never respond to messages despite offering gifts.

5. If the cellular phone is lost, the location of the device can be known by activating Android Device Manager so that it can search for the location of the cell phone on the map remotely. Ring or lock, make a phone call, or delete everything on the cell phone. (INT.IND / ENG / *)
