One of the most important considerations when owning a device, be it mobile, desktop or laptop, is its security. You should always have an up-to-date anti-virus application installed on your device. You should invest in locks and tracking software to ensure the physical security of your device. To protect your software and operating system, you should always install patches and security updates to ensure these products remain secure. To keep both your devices and your accounts safe, you must create safe and long, strong and unbreakable passwords.
