PREVENT YOUR PHONE FROM BEEN STOLEN
To secure your smartphone from been stolen here are some suggestions you should follow
- Lock your phone with a strong lock option.
I don’t advice you to use your name, pet names, date of birth as a lock option. these options can easily be guessed. I would rather advice you use either a strong password, pattern, pin or any form of Biometrics recognition options.
on the area of using passwords, always use a combination of letters, numbers and special characters and understand that the longer your passwords the better.
With Passwords, it’s in your best interest that you combine letters, numbers, and other special characters. The longer they are, the better.
