Today’s smartphones carry so much vital information that it makes perfect sense to lock them down in case they should fall into the wrong hands. To further protect your smartphone, take advantage of its built-in features by activating any firewalls and antivirus protection programs. If your phone doesn’t include such features, there are plenty of third-party security applications available to protect you against worms, malware, Trojan horses, spam, snoopware, and the like. Companies that provide protection against such threats include Symantec and F-Secure, among others.
