Mobile has become the global leader in convenient technology. Cell phones are the primary source of communication, followed by other mobile devices like laptops, smartwatches, and tablets, which means mobile lifecycle management is becoming increasingly important.
Mobility-managed services such as test and repair, refurbishment, liquidation, remarketing, and reverse logistics management help to maximize the value of retired devices. Still, the most important service is data security. Data erasure is a key step in preventing data leaks after retirement, but while devices are in use, it’s important to keep your private and company data safe.
Mobile phones are used for almost everything and store exponential amounts of data. Luckily, some apps are designed to help reduce the risk of data breaches and secure your device.
- McAfee Privacy & Security is an all-in-one online protection app with WiFi VPN encryption that protects your data and privacy on up to five devices, including smartphones, tablets, Macs, and PCs.
- Mobile Security – Lookout provides mobile security and identity protection on the go with services such as system advisor, locate and alert, signal flare, safe WiFi, breach report, theft alerts, and safe browsing.
- Fing is a mobile scanner that discovers all of the devices connected to your WiFi and identifies them, including those that do not have permission to access it.
- VPN Surfshark – Web Privacy enables you to browse the internet with end-to-end encryption that prevents hackers from accessing your data.
