REMEMBER: Your smartphone is your confidante, your hand-held connection to the world and one of your ''biggest vulnerabilities''.

Scammers can take advantage of day-to-day tasks that seem innocuous, like checking a bank-balance  or charging a phone at a public USB port. to exploit personal information for their profit.

To keep that data safe, start by understanding the threats you face.
Your phone has three main areas of vulnerability; its hardware, its software and your phone number.

Each carries a risk, and there are steps you can take to mitigate them.


A four-digit passcode alone isn't enough to secure your phone's hardware from intruders.

One weakness comes from the charging port. Think twice before plugging into a public USB jack for a quick charge at a cafe or airport.

''Any time you're using a mobile port, you can be vulnerable to viruses or malware if you're sharing it with other people who are plugging in their devices,'' says Lisa Schifferie, ID theft program manager at at the Federal Trade commission.

Using a public charging port at an airport is like ''finding a toothbrush on the side of the road and deciding to stick it in your mouth'' Caleb Barlow, vice president of X-Force Threat Intelligence at IBM Security, recently told Forbes.

HACKERS can modify these ports to install malevolent software, aka malware, on your phone. Once installed, it can transfer your phone's data to hackers.

The hacked USB ports can also directly suck up your phone's information. To avoid the risk, use  your USB cord with your own charging block that can plug into a standard electrical outlet, or use an external battery pack.

For daily security, go beyond the four digit passcode if possible, says Gary Davis, chief consumer security evangelist at the cybersecurity company McAfee.

''Passcodes aren't as effective as biometrics, like fingerprint  readers or facial recognition software,  because people can do shoulder surfing to see your passcode and and get into your phone'' if they steal it.


Scammers can target your personal information using unsecured wireless networks and software vulnerabilities.

Network risks : be wary of public Wi-Fi networks.

''We advise against using public Wi-Fi but if you're going to use it, avoid logging into to sensitive accounts,'' says Allen Spence, director of product leadership at IDShield, an identity theft protection company.

To protect yourself from inadvertently using insecure Wi-Fi networks, adjust your phone settings to avoid auto connecting to Wi-Fi.

Hackers can exploit vulnerabilities in phone software.

Schiifferle of the FTC suggests consumers routinely check for and download software updates for their phones, because updates often include security patches.
