How to Keep Your Smartphone Safe, Inside Out And Maximize Its Performance

Posted in:

We carry our smartphones everywhere we go, storing all the vital information and personal data necessary to live a comfortable life in the modern world. It is more important than ever to protect our smartphones from threats, whether they are malicious, environmental, or accidental. Our discussion today will also include tips on how to maximize the performance of your smartphone.


Take a moment to consider all of the information you store on your phone - personal information, credit card information, mobile banking information, contacts, precious photos and many more. Do you have confidence that your device is protected from intrusion, malicious or otherwise? Here are some suggestions to keep your device safe: To gain access to your device, enable the passcode or fingerprint sensor. On Apple iPhones, all data is erased after ten unsuccessful attempts to access the device with a passcode. On Android, you can enable a similar feature using a third-party application. Make use of the built-in hardware encryption. On iOS and Android devices, you can set your device to be fully encrypted until the correct PIN/passcode has been entered. To ensure maximum security, disable the ability to remember passwords on apps and in the browser and do not use autocomplete forms. Ensure that you back up your data to the Cloud or on a USB stick or alternative storage device. Even if something goes wrong with the operating system or hardware, you will protect your data. The use of Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, location services, and cellular services can provide unintended parties with access to your phone. When you are not using your communications, turn them off. By disabling these features until you need them, you will also save battery life and optimize performance on your smartphone. Keep an eye out for imitators that attempt to phish financial information, such as credit card numbers, by downloading apps from known vendors. If you are unsure about the permissions/requests from an app, you can disable them.

The vast majority of smartphone users use their mobile devices. Are you tired of draining your iPhone's battery before midday? Are you frustrated by the time it takes for an Android device to pull up an email or open a new browser window? Or perhaps it fails to load? Smartphones have made it easier for us to communicate and conduct business on the go, but slow, laggy performance stands in the way. Fortunately, with a few simple tweaks and adjustments, you can get your smartphone performing at its best.

Get Familiar with Your Device

Smartphones have numerous differences concerning processing power, storage, operating systems, hardware, battery life, display technology, and connectivity. You can increase performance by upgrading your operating system to the latest firmware, understanding the limits of your device, and avoiding always-on, resource-consuming applications. Please refer to your device's technical specifications or ask a professional for advice on how to increase the performance of your device.

Organize and Optimize Your App Library

Whether you download live widgets (such as the weather) or live wallpapers (that move), every app you install is more than just a colourful icon on your screen. In addition to the main activities on your phone - browsing, sending texts, talking, taking pictures, listening to music, etc. - each app utilizes memory space and executes additional processes in the background. Additionally, most devices come with OEM or carrier software that you may not want or need. Your device works harder when you have more apps installed, even when you are not actively using them. To determine how many apps you have installed, please go to Settings > Apps. You can view the number of installed apps on your iPhone by going to Settings > General > Usage. If you no longer use any apps, it is recommended that you delete them. You can disable apps without deleting their application files using Android's Performance Assistant or an app such as Greenify, and you can enable them again at any time. Be sure to keep up-to-date with any apps you decide to keep. It will help to eliminate bugs and improve the app's overall performance.

Optimize Your Settings

Optimize your phone's settings (both general settings and app-specific settings) for optimal performance. Various settings, such as location-based services and push notifications for email and apps, are known to drain the battery. Some of the biggest performance drains come from convenience features such as GPS and always-on updates. Control how often your device refreshes the Gmail notifications by prioritizing importance; turn off iMessage if you don't use it on an iPhone. If you prefer to listen to your music and podcasts through a third-party app and have an Apple device, turn off syncing in iTunes to save storage space and improve performance as podcasts sync in the background. Try something like Agent to set your phone to connect to Wi-Fi when you are at home. For example, or Tasker for more advanced optimization; both of these apps offer contextual intelligence that allows you to create ‘if this then that’ scenarios that simplify and customize the use of your smartphone, reducing battery drain and maximizing performance. Using apps regularly can also leave a digital footprint on your device. Remove temporary files and system caches from your device or transfer files to the cloud to free up device storage.
