    If you are using the Smartphone then you must be careful to protect the data on your phone, if you do not want somebody else to have access to same. You must enter a password or password lock on the phone (not referring to the SIM PIN code of the mobile operator, but the lock code that is associated with the device), is the first line of defense, prevent anyone with access to our mobile terminal can use or view your data. We should note that without encryption, anyone can access the contents of your smartphone. Choose and download an application to encrypt and secure our personal information to the intervention of a hacker or user.

    Encryption is available on iPhone 4 and is automatically activated when you set a passcode. The automatic deletion of all data stored on the device can be activated by placing the Delete menu option to ON data, which will delete all data after ten failed attempts to enter the password.

    If you are having Android phone then I would like to tell you that Android does not currently have any hardware-level encryption as iPhone and Blackberry. However, we can use a third-party encryption application, we turn to pull Keeper Password & Data Vault , allowing us to store passwords and other important information in our Android without being exposed to the crooks. If we set up e-Exchange of our work, the application will use Touchdown to encrypt the email, calendar and contacts stored on your Android device.

    Here are some of the tips to protect your phone.
    • Block access to the device with a password. It is necessary to prevent intruders from entering our content from phonebook, SMS or email. Make a key complex, lengthy and with numbers. This must not include your name or your dog, or your date of birth.
    • Encrypt the data. Both stored on the phone and the memory card. So if someone came after unlock the phone with the password, they could not access the content.
    • You must make a backup. It is not just a measure to avoid losing data in case of loss or theft, but also when we take the set for repair. If you have information is encrypted (the previous tip), no such action is necessary.
