Secure our Android device with 5 simple steps

Switching to a different device with a more secure operating system such as iOS or Linux may not be an option for you. Here are five steps you can take to begin the process of preparation for mediation.

  1. Buy a VPN
  2. Install a malware program and delete the infected apps
  3. Enable two-factor authentication on your accounts
  4. Encrypt your device
  5. Keep your device up to date

Let's see the steps in detail one by one.

  1. Buy a VPN

A VPN secures your Internet connection by encrypting your traffic and passing it through VPN servers to hide your real IP address. You can use the VPN built into Android or you can install a high quality VPN application from an established provider.

Avoid free VPNs, as they often offer lower security and may sell your data.

  1. Install a malware program and delete the infected apps

If your Android device uses a lot of data or is too slow, it may be infected with malware or ransomware through dubious apps for gambling, porn, games, cheat codes and so on.

Detect and remove malware using top applications anti-malware for your Android devices. If the applications fail, consider asking a qualified technician to clean your device.

  1. Enable two-factor authentication on your accounts

Improve your device security by using Google Verifier to secure your entire account. Get started by enabling two-factor authentication on your Google Account on a computer. Then download and install the application Google Authenticator from the Play Store.

Finally, configure the authentication application on your device. Set the app only on a personal Android device that you have secured with a passphrase, pattern or PIN. This way, none of you can access your Google Account.

  1. Encrypt your device

Android devices with Android version 5.0 or later have one encryption tool for the safety of your device. This tool goes beyond locking your screen, as no one can see your account data, applications and media on your device without a single encryption key. Find the encryption tool in your settings and follow the easy steps to encrypt your device.

  1. Keep your device up to date

Android provides security patches periodically. You will receive a notification as soon as updates are available for your device. Once available, download and install your software updates as soon as possible to secure your device. Delaying this leaves it exposed to security vulnerabilities that can be exploited by malware and hackers.

Enjoy your experience with a secure Android device

These steps will protect your device and allow you to access the Internet securely. You do not have to worry about cyber criminals, malicious and annoying advertisements, ISPs and rogue government agencies monitoring the internet and stealing your data.

Even if you are never 100% safe, at least you will not be an easy target.
