Do a winter cleaning through your mobile apps

Take a quick glance over your mobile apps, see what you have installed there.

  • Remove any apps you haven’t been using – they are vulnerabilities for your security and privacy.
  • Revoke permissions for apps that require access to sensitive information – why would a flashlight app request access to read your messages, for example?
  • Keep your apps update – this lowers the chances for malware to take advantage of their vulnerabilities.

And remember to never install apps from anywhere else but the official app store. In Android, there’s a setting that also doesn’t allow apps from third parties to be installed.

Sharing is caring!
