Help keep your smartphone safe and secure

By Amy Johnsonbaugh




October is National Cyber Security Awareness month and we couldn’t think of anyone better to deliver insights about mobile security than our security collaborator Lookout.
 
Because it’s National Cyber Security Awareness month, it’s the perfect time of year to learn more about mobile risks, mobile security and how to help keep both your mobile phone and your personal data safe. Just like your PC, your mobile phone needs protecting too.
 
In the last month, the world of technology and security have been busy. Apple released its new iPhone and another major retailer got hacked. What’s one thing they have in common? Security. Click here to read recent blog posts on these topics, from our friends at Lookout, who can help you become informed about current security events and provide tips on being security-smart on your smartphone.
 
Sprint offers the Lookout Security & Antivirus app on select Android™-powered Sprint devices, in store and online, making mobile security more accessible than ever.
