Keep Your Android Smartphone Safe with These 5 Steps

 


Security has denied the concern of current Android smartphone users. Because of this, not a few users are spending more time ensuring the security of their Android accounts and devices.


While for some users this is very inconvenient, Google has actually equipped Android with security features and systems in it.



The presence of these features and systems clearly makes it easy for users to check and ensure the security of their Android smartphones.



For that, we will provide tips to ensure the security of Android devices by checking the features and systems in them below.



1. Google Play Protect



Play Protect is a malware scanner implemented by Google on Android smartphones. Depending on its function, this feature will scan the application on the device to make sure there is no malware in it.



This function is activated automatically, but you can check to make sure. So, we just need to open the Settings menu, select Security, and open Google Play Protect.



After that, open the gear icon in the upper right corner of the screen. Once opened, all you have to do is make sure the Scan app with Play Protect and Enhance the malicious app detection option is active.



2. Enable the Lock Screen Feature

Aside from the Android system itself, you also need to ensure the security of your device. For that, you need to activate the Screen Lock feature so that your device cannot be opened by anyone.



For those of you who don’t know how, you can open the Settings menu, select Security, and unlock Screen Lock.



Once unlocked, all you have to do is choose the type of screen lock you want, from PIN, password, to biometrics.



To increase privacy, you can also customize the appearance of the notifications you receive. Therefore, you can enable the option to hide the content of sensitive notifications or hide all notifications on the lock screen.



3. Run the Google Security Check



The security of your Google account is no less important. Therefore, you should perform regular Security Checks to ensure the security of your account.



You can open the Settings menu, select Google. After that, all you have to do is open Manage your Google Account and open the Security option to find out if there is a problem with your account.



4. Use Safe Browsing in Chrome

Chrome uses the default browser typically found on Android devices. While not many people know, this browser also has a security system in it.



To do this, all you have to do is open the three -dot icon in the upper right corner, then select Settings. After that, open Sync and Google Services, then be sure to turn on the Safe Browsing feature.



5. Do not Install Applications from Unclear Sources



Some users of Android devices may be familiar with the option to Install Applications from Unknown Sources. This option is indeed useful for users who want to install applications from third -party app stores or in the form of APKs.



But keep in mind, this option has its own security threats. For that, for those of you who have never installed an application from a third party, make sure this option is disabled.
