Your Smartphone’s Cyber Liability RiskInsured by Carver
- Lock Up: If your phone has a keylock or PIN code, use it! Without this kind of protection, any person who picks up your phone gains instant access to all of the data you have stored on it.
- Download Carefully: Never download an app from a source you do not trust. This is also true of website links that will ask you to download content.
- Encrypt: Most smartphones offer encryption software that will ask for a code before allowing access to certain folders or files. If you store sensitive information on your phone, use this software.
