When purchasing a Smartphone, know the features of the device, including the default settings. Passcode protect your mobile device. This is the first layer of physical security to protect the contents of the device. In conjunction with the passcode, enable the screen lock feature after a few minutes of inactivity.
Do not allow your device to connect to unknown wireless networks. These networks could be rogue access points that capture information passed between your device and a legitimate server. Avoid clicking on or otherwise downloading software or links from unknown sources.
If you decide to sell your device or trade it in, make sure you wipe the device (reset it to factory default) to avoid leaving personal data on the device.
Run the updates. Smartphones require updates to run applications and firmware. If users neglect this it increases the risk of having their device hacked or compromised.
Use the same precautions on your mobile phone as you would on your computer when using the Internet.
