Protecting Your Smartphone From Hackers

Hackers are now targeting smartphones with programs to steal your valuable information, so experts are suggesting some measures to protect yourself.

First, don't store sensitive information on your phone that can be accessed if it's lost or stolen.

Smartphones can get viruses, so protect yourself with software to keep them secure.

If you're using Wi-F in a public place, don't try to access your online bank accounts.

Experts recommend against so-called 'jailbreaking' the Iphone to use third party software. That move disrupts its security measures and leaves it vulnerable to attack.
