5 Tips You Should Follow for Smartphone Security That You Don't
by news

I carry a little computer with me everywhere I go. Think I'm a geek? Guess what? If you have an iPhone, Android device or any other smartphone, you do, too. Phones have become computers, so we need to become as security conscious about them as we are about our desktops and laptops.

If you do banking via your phone, multiply everything I said above to the Nth degree. Honestly, I hadn't thought much about any of this -- I'm a bit of a technophobe -- until my friend Adam Levin of Credit.com brought it up. "Our sensitive personal data is the new thief's currency, the new gold," said Levin, "and we need to manage it with the same level of attention as we would give the entrance to a bank vault.

Here are Levin's best tips for protecting your smart phone -- and everything you do on it -- from hackers, identity thieves, crooks and creeps.
