If you’re running an updated, OS or older apps, then it opens the door for hackers. It’S very important, to keep your smartphone up to date with the OS & as well as your apps.
Currently, you have so many different accounts across various platforms, so always keep different passwords for all your different accounts. This sometimes becomes difficult to manage all your passwords, but you can always use a password manager app to manage your different passwords.
Some password manager links are given in the description below so check it out Suppose if one of your accounts gets hacked & that password is linked to all other accounts, then your other accounts can easily be hacked And always keep 2FA 2 Factor Authentication turned on that.

So please do not do this. Carry a power bank to charge your gadgets, but don’t use public charging stations And do not install antivirus apps
They’Ve really become useless these days, Antivirus apps are generally not needed because the latest android versions work the same way to protect your phone, So do not download antivirus apps One more things that is important. We usually use, pin or password, but never use, passcode or passphrase & that is the safest, because pattern & pin can easily be hacked. So it’s always safe to use passphrase, Which is the combination of numbers. Letters & special characters Need to tell you 2-3 things.
We often browse in incognito mode thinking it is safe, But actually it’s not that way & your ISP has all the info about your browsing.
If you want to browse something private use, TOR browser as it is kind of a VPN That will enable safe & secure browsing for you, But normal incognito mode is not secure. We do get different ads & personalized ads on our smartphones, But it can be disabled. In google settings This will turn off the ads that you get based on your interest, So please turn them off.
