Did your heart stop the last time you had to give your phone to someone? Fearing which folder they’ll open? It’s quite understandable since all your personal data, emails, photographs, and other sensitive information, is saved on it. Your data is not just vulnerable when handing over the phone to someone but also to hacking and theft.
Here are some tips to keep personal data hidden and secure on your phone.
Swiper, no Swiping: Don’t you hate it when you give someone your phone to show them a picture, and they start swiping sideways to see others? Well, apps such as Focus can prevent this as it requests a PIN before showing the next photo.
Fingerprint scanner: The latest smartphones such as Xolo Era 2X have fingerprint sensors which you can use not only to limit access to your phone, but also to add extra protection to apps related to banking and chat.
.nomedia file: Hide content from your gallery by simply adding a blank file in the specific folder. A good File Manager software such as ES Explorer is necessary for this. Simply create a file with the name .nomedia and place it in the folder. It acts as an indication for the other apps to skip the folder.
App options: You can also choose from the many apps on Play Store to secure your phone data. Applocker, for instance, locks folders and apps, and only allows access through a password.
Antivirus: Hackers can get access to your phone’s content through malwares that come along with some of your favourite apps (and of course the ones you don’t like). Install a good antivirus on your smartphone to prevent information leaks.
Use any of these tips to better secure your phone, and you will be less stressed about who’s holding it.
