October is celebrated as National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) globally. To this end, the Computer Response Emergency Team, a national nodal agency responding to computer security incidents, is conducting cybersecurity awareness campaigns across the country.
The agency advises Android smartphone users on some key security measures. Some important tips on what factors should be taken into consideration before downloading any new app from the Google Play Store. So let’s take a look at the most important things to keep in mind before downloading the App.
Official App Store usage
It is very important that users only use official app stores (Google Play Store) to download new apps to their smartphones.
Uninstall Unused App
Sometimes there are more unused apps on the user’s smartphone. Gateways from your phone to apps that have not been used for a long time. It is better from a safety standpoint.
When you download the new app from the Google Play Store to the smartphone, read the reviews written by other users. And learn about App Developers.
Most of the apps are displaying online shopping discounts. Users should be aware of such promising applications.
