They are called virusses, worms, Trojan horses or, in general, malware. They’ve been attacking our computers for years and now they are turning on our smartphones.
But with these tips from our Bizz Expert, you can fight back.

Alexis Claessens, Bizz Expert: “Just like your computer, your smartphone connects to the internet to download applications, receive mails and visit web pages. So it’s only logical that smartphones can also fall victim to virus attacks.Reason enough to take care. I have 6 tips to better protect your smartphone.”

1. Watch out with emails

Never open email attachments from someone you don’t know.

2. Check where your apps come from

Windows, Google, Apple and BlackBerry have all set up they’re own app store. One of the advantages of this approach is that this offers a better view on the applications on offer. Still, some smartphone operating systems are more susceptible to attacks than others. You can easily find more info about this on the internet.

3. Watch out with Bluetooth

Turn your Bluetooth off whenever you don’t need it. And if you do use, Bluetooth, make sure you do so in hidden modus.

4. Don’t download anything and everything

Only use well known web sites and portals to download photos, videos, games or ringtones.

5. Install your updates

Install your operating system’s updates as soon as they become available. Even though developers don’t exactly shout it from the rooftops, they do take virusses into account when updating their software.

6. Get some protection

Install security software on your smartphone. They don’t cost all that much and they really take away a lot of potential headaches.
