Everything you need for your daily transactions, communication, and connection can be found on your phone. It holds your banking apps, emails, contacts, passwords, account information, social media, and more.
That’s why fraudsters attempt to hack into your phone or steal it from you. They can take over your apps and accounts, and ultimately steal your money.
If you lose your phone, act fast and do the following:
As added measures, passcode-protect your phone, and NEVER autosave your usernames and passwords on your phone’s apps. You should also avoid saving a file or list of your login details and personal information for your banking and non-banking accounts. So in case your phone falls in the wrong hands, you’re theft proof.
