  1. Not setting a password

  Setting a password on your phone is the first line of defense so that only you can access the important data on your phone. Your phone contains valuable information you want to keep safe: contacts, appointments, files, social network sites, passwords… if this information falls into the wrong hands, a password will help keep all of your sensitive data private.

  2. Using public Wi-Fi

  The recent explosion of free, public Wi-Fi has been an enormous boon for smart phone users. Since these free access points are available at restaurants, hotels, airports, bookstores, and even retail outlets, you are rarely more than a short trip away from access to a network. The same features that make free Wi-Fi hotspots desirable for consumers make them desirable for hackers, therefore, freedom comes at a price.

  3. Shopping online through browser

  Like desktop browsers, mobile browsers are susceptible to attack by Trojan viruses. People use plug-ins to protect their online shopping when using PCs. However, there are no plug-ins for mobile smart phones.

  4. Scanning unfamiliar QR codes

  We’ve been seeing a lot of these QR codes in magazines, on tickets, buses, business cards, TV, websites, on almost any object which we might want to learn more about. On the one hand, they’ve become great marketing tools for advertisers; on the other, cybercriminals have spotted their potential as a means of spreading malware, stealing identities and phishing for personal information. In other words, QR codes make things run faster and easier, but they can also pose a threat to your mobile security.

  5. Clicking on links in text messages

  Sending messages designed to trick the recipients into clicking on a deceptive link was once reserved for fake but real-looking email scams trying to fool users into visiting malicious sites on their PC, but scammers have realized there are far fewer protections on smart phones, and no small number of potential victims.
