Insight: 12 ways to protect your mobile device 
In observance of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, American Bankers Association offers these 12 ways to protect your mobile device: 
  1. Use the passcode lock on your smartphone and other devices. This will make it more difficult for thieves to access your information if your device is lost or stolen.
  2. Log out completely when you finish a mobile banking session.
  3. Protect your phone from viruses and malicious software, or malware, just like you do for your computer by installing mobile security software.
  4. Use caution when downloading apps. Apps may contain malicious software, worms, and viruses. Beware of bogus programs and/or apps that feature simulated ad interactions or display intentionally misleading buttons or layouts. Be cautious of apps that ask for unnecessary permissions.
  5. Download the updates for your phone and mobile apps as soon as they are released. 
  6. Avoid storing sensitive information like passwords or your Social Security number on your mobile device. However, if you choose to store passwords on your phone, consider using a "password keeper," which allows you to store sensitive information using a single passcode.
  7. Tell your financial institution immediately if you change your phone number or lose your mobile device.
  8. Be aware of shoulder surfers. The most basic form of information theft is observation. Be aware of your surroundings especially when entering sensitive information.
  9. Wipe your mobile device before you donate, sell, or trade it using specialized software or the manufacturer's recommended technique. Some software allows you to wipe your device remotely if it is lost or stolen.
  10. Beware of mobile phishing. Avoid opening links and attachments in emails and texts, especially from senders you don't know. Be wary of ads (not from your security provider) claiming that your device is infected.
  11. Watch out for public Wi-Fi. Public connections aren't secure, so don't perform banking transactions on a public network. If you need to access your account, disable the Wi-Fi and switching to your mobile network.
  12. Report any suspected fraud to your bank immediately.
