Enable strong passwords & biometric security

Create robust passwords and enable fingerprint or face recognition. This simple step is like having a digital lock, keeping your personal data and apps secure.

Update your apps and operating system

Keep the digital intruders at bay by regularly updating your apps and OS. These updates often include security patches and features designed to protect your mobile device from the latest cyber threats.

Avoid public Wi-Fi for sensitive transactions

Public Wi-Fi networks are like open highways, where anyone can hop in at any time. Avoid accessing sensitive information or performing financial transactions on these networks to prevent unauthorized access to your data.

Turn off bluetooth and Wi-Fi when not in use

Leaving your Bluetooth and Wi-Fi on makes your device visible and accessible to others around you. Turn them off when you’re not using them to reduce the risk of unauthorized access.

Download apps from trusted sources only

Stick to official app stores like Google Play and Apple App Store. Downloading apps from unreliable sources can expose your device to malicious software.

Backup your data regularly

Before you jet off, ensure you backup your important data. Whether it’s your travel snaps or important emails, having a backup means you’re prepared for any digital hiccups along the way.

Use a Virtual Private Network (VPN)

A VPN is like a secure tunnel for your data. It encrypts your data, making it harder for cybercriminals to intercept. Ideal for keeping your digital footprint secure while you uncover hidden gems around the world!

Here are some of the most popular VPN providers:

• ExpressVPN
• NordVPN
• Surfshark
• Proton
• CyberGhost

Be wary of phishing scams

Stay vigilant! Be wary of unsolicited communications and phishing scams. Cybercriminals are always fishing for information, so don’t take the bait!
