With th fast developement of internet, more and more people have the chance to access the internet which in some extence will brings insecurity to our daily life. There are some advices of how to use the mobile phone more security.

Eventhough most of the people are usual, but we still may be the target of hackers.So we still need to pay attention to the safety of using phone. Because there are a lot prosonal information here.The hacker may resetting your account password or other sensitive passwords. So it is essentially to "clean" your phones.

---Please using passcode while using phone.

Just like the door it needs lock to pretent.A four-digit passcode - and an accompanying self-destruct feature that might wipe a phone's data after too many wrong guesses.Using six digits makes a passcode 100 times harder to guess.And if you want to make it even harder, you can add letters and other characters to further increase the number of possible combinations.And if you want to make it even harder, you can add letters and other characters to further increase the number of possible combinations.These are options on both iPhones and Android.The iPhone's self-destruct feature is something you must turn on in the settings, under Touch ID & Passcode.Do so, and the phone wipes itself clean after 10 failed attempts. But the 10 attempts apply to your guesses, too, if you forget your passcode, or if your kids start randomly punching in numbers. Android has a similar feature.Both systems will also introduce waiting periods after several wrong guesses to make it tough to try all combos.Biometrics, such as fingerprint scanners, can act as a shortcut and make complex passcodes less of a pain.

---Using the function of encryption

Much to the FBI's displeasure, iPhones running at least iOS 8 offer full-disk encryption by default.That means that the information stored on the phone can't be extracted - by authorities or by hackers - and read on another computer.If the phone isn't unlocked first, any information obtained would be scrambled and unreadable.With Android, however, you typically have to turn that on in the settings.

---Setting the finders functionSET UP DEVICE FINDERS

Find My iPhone isn't just for finding your phone in the couch cushions.If your device disappears, you can put it in Lost Mode. That locks your screen with a passcode, if it isn't already, and lets you display a custom message with a phone number to help you get it back.The app comes with iPhones, but you need to set it up before you lose your phone. Look for the Find iPhone app in the Extras folder.Meanwhile, Activation Lock makes it harder for thieves to sell your device.The phone becomes unusable - it can't be reactivated - without knowing its Apple ID. The feature kicks in automatically on phones running at least iOS 7.

---Back up the data

If you do have to remotely wipe the phone's data, it's comforting to know that you won't lose all your photos and other important data.As mentioned before, apps such as Find My iPhone and Android Device Manager will allow you to do this, provided you set them up ahead of time.

---Update the software

Software updates often contain fixes to known flaws that might give hackers a way into your device.On iPhones, Apple prompts you to get the update. Alternatively, you can go to Settings, General and Software Update to check which version you are running.It's more complicated with Android because updates need to go through various phone manufacturers and wireless carriers first. But do install updates when asked.This also applies to apps. Keep them updated to make sure bugs and flaws can't be exploited.
