Mobile device security

While mobile devices are not secured in the same way that desktop computers are, the following recommendations are best practice to limit risk:

System updates

Keep Apple IOS, Android OS and Windows Phone operating systems updated.

Passcode protect

Set a SIM passcode and screen lock.

Enable encryption

  • Apple – enabled once the passcode lock is configured
  • Android – settings, security, encrypt device
  • Windows – settings, systems, device encryption

Location detection and data wiping

Activate 'Find my Device' and enable remote wipe where available. For more information on this refer to:

Find my iPhone, iPad

Find my Android device

Find my Windows device

Report a security incident
