Mobile devices - smartphones and tablets - are increasingly being used just like computers. We use them for online shopping, banking and socialising. They often have even more personal information on them than our home computers - images, videos, location markers of where you are and where you've been - but with much less security.
Your mobile device can be very vulnerable to cyber attacks or just traditional theft.
TOP TIPS: Protect your mobile devices
- Make sure your mobile device is locked with a secure password
- If you're using a WIFI network in a public place, make sure the connection is genuine and secure
- Don't leave your Bluetooth on unless you are using it
- Download a reputable and genuine anti-virus app
