DID YOU KNOW?
Using that free public Wi-Fi at your local coffee is enough to put you at risk of getting hacked? Hackers have become ingenious in their ways and methods of acquiring sensitive data. You might be getting hacked in broad daylight right now and you wouldn't even know it. From unsecured public Wi-Fi to Phishing text scams and even public charging stations. So many ways put your smartphone and personal data at risk by things that you would have thought of as unlikely. Cybersecurity is more recognized today than it was a few years ago and people are starting to wise up.
More and more people are starting to recognize the threat to their cybersecurity. They have begun to act smart and more cautious of how they use their phones in public. People who buy phones like Android install anti-virus programs as standard now. They install apps to hide apps that contain sensitive information. This is to protect from eavesdropping bystanders or when lending their phones to a friend. They have started to install trackers on their phones. In extreme cases when they lose their phones, they will have ways to locate it. Cybersecurity is a real and serious threat in a time when everyone is "always connected". By observing best practices in security and mindfulness, safety and avoidance are possible.
