The best thing about using an encrypted messaging app is that you don’t have to worry about your messages getting intercepted or deleted.
The problem arises when it comes to your personal information being stored on your phone.
As a result, many users are concerned that their phone will be tapped by a third party.
Here’s how you can protect yourself from this kind of data theft:Step 1: Ensure your phone has an encryption key If your phone is unlocked and the default PIN is left at 0, it’s unlikely that a third-party will have access to your data, according to Microsoft.
In the case of a smartphone, that means that if you want to call or text a friend, you’ll need to enter your phone’s PIN and unlock it.
If you don-t have a PIN on your smartphone, the only way to secure it is to enter the phone’s default password.
Step 2: Lock your phone and use the default passwordOnce your phone starts up, you can access the default settings to set up a new PIN, unlock the phone and enter a new password.
If this doesn’t work, you should try the following steps:Step 3: Change the default default passwordYou can change the default phone PIN by going to Settings > Phone Settings and changing the PIN to something else.
If your PIN is the same as the default, you won’t be able to change the PIN.
If it’s different, you will need to change it again.
The good news is that if the PIN you use on your mobile is the default one, it will be sent to your phone automatically.
However, if you change the password and change the phone PIN, the default will not be sent.
This means that any data you enter into a phone will stay on the phone.
This is especially important if you have a long-term mobile plan.
If you’re using your mobile to communicate with friends, or use your mobile as a personal assistant, you could also be concerned about data being transmitted in the wrong place.
You could also find yourself in trouble if your personal data is shared with third parties.
Here are some suggestions on how to safeguard your data:Step 4: Change your default PINYou can also change the way your phone uses its PIN by setting it to something different, such as an SMS code or a unique number.
If your PIN isn’t the same, it may not be able, for example, to be entered on your computer or smartphone.
If that’s the case, you might want to change your PIN for your phone so that it doesn’t use the same number as your existing one.
Step 5: Check for new PINYou may also want to check to make sure that your PIN hasn’t changed recently.
If so, you may need to make changes to the settings.
If all this seems complicated, you’re not alone.
