4 security mistakes you’re making on Android

How many of them do you make?

As on more than one occasion we have said, the security of our mobile phone must be one of our priorities. The reasons are not few and it is that in it we store all kinds of personal and private information such as photographs, email accounts, passwords, contacts and even bank details.

Despite all this, many are the users who do not watch over their privacy and security, taking actions that endanger your smartphone. Some of them seem innocent but can carry great dangers.

Here we leave you a few security errors that we make when using Android and that we must avoid right now.

Have outdated devices

Android 11 and Android 12, the two most recent versions of Android

Although this does not depend so much on the user as on the signature, we have a lot to say about it. Obviously, one of the easiest ways to avoid security problems is to have a mobile phone that is always up to date.

The firms that update the best and fastest you already know (Google, Samsung, OnePlus …) so sincerely, we always recommend you to bet on these brands.

The updates correct security errors and prevent the new increasingly frequent threats from affecting our terminals, so if a firm does not update their devices … Why should I bet on it?

Downloads from untrustworthy sites

Although the official app stores are not always risk-free, they are usually the most suitable place to download the applications on our Google terminals.

Indeed, the freedom that reigns in Android means that the Play Store is not exempt from malware, but despite everything we always recommend install any tool from the official app store or failing that, from the official website of the application.

Weak passwords

password 123456

And again “123456” is still the worst password

Would you leave the keys to your house outside? Then, Why do you put weak passwords on your smartphone? A few days ago we discussed how Brazilian criminals managed to access the information on the iPhones they stole. Most users used weak passwords and many of them saved them in the notes application. A disaster.

Passwords like 123456 or qwerty are still being used in 2021 so please take a bit of seriousness. Mixing uppercase, lowercase and numbers is usually the most suitable and of course, never use the date of your birthday.

Click on links that lead to scams

If you think that a smartphone, because it is a smartphone, does not have the same risks as a computer, you are very wrong. As we advise you not to download applications from untrustworthy sites, of course not click on links whose origin is unknown to us I mean something strange.

From people we do not know who tell us to download their photos in this link, banks that require us to send them our data to confirm our identity and even companies such as Google or Apple that require our passwords because otherwise they will proceed to delete our accounts. All this is a lie and therefore we must avoid falling into these traps.

In conclusion, mobile threats (and on the internet in general) will always exist, so it’s up to us to make it difficult for them. Avoiding all of the above is really simple, it just takes a little care and common sense … which unfortunately in many is the least common of the senses.
