By Easytech4all.net

1.Only #download #apps u need.Check the Star rating , recent reviews and user comments beforehand.

2.Use #ProgressiveWebApp or simply web app services instead of native apps wherever possible.coz it conserves the battery and cpu resources..plus takes care of #privacy issues as native #apps request a lot of permission.Use web apps for #makemytrip #flipkart #paytmlite #flipboard #forbes ..Basically most #ecommerce #hotel & #travel #booking services have decent #browser powered #pwa or #webapps .

3. #Adfree Apps from tech giants like #Microsoft #Google etc are always better and preferable..For example use #msoffice for #android instead of other #ad prone office apps.

4.Do not rely heavily on #OTP based 2FA(two factor #authentication ) . Use Google Microsoft or Authy #Authenticator apps to generate codes on ur device.

5.We all love #Cloudcomputing . But looking at the recent breaches i do not trust the cloud services that do not support 2FA like Google Microsoft or Authy Authenticators to generate codes on device..not just mobile otp . So personally prefer #offline non #server based #data #sync and #backup . Like #LG mobile default data backup , Samsung mobile #usb backup or #huawei default data backup facility.
#Lenovo Sync , #Resilio and #Android #Helium data backup also serves the purpose.Take frequent backups of ur data.

6.Use samsungs securefolder & knox , Huawei safe folder and ES file explorer/SSE omega file/folder encryption to store/encrypt your confidential & sensitive data.Samsung uses bank level 256bit encryption for secure folder and knox.SSE omega also supports 256bit encryption protocol.

7.Finally use 2 Smartphones & mobile numbers / Emails.
one for all your banking and financial transactions , Government services etc . Other for your office & professional work.

8.Do not click on unnecessary & suspicious links in emails or messaging services.Always use search engines to investigate a little.

Just Google d terminology that u don’t comprehend or comment below.

Thanks.Stay Alert & Safe.
