Five Ways to Secure a Web Browser for a Tablet

It is important to secure your tablet’s web browser before you go internet surfing. Here are five ways to do it…

  1. Use a secured wireless network for WiFi or 3G/4G connection. Using unencrypted wireless networks are very insecure and can be a way for hackers and other threats to happen to your device.
  2. Use a Virtual Private Network (VPN). VPNs are available through your mobile service provider (if you have one, like 3G/4G access). They provide an extra layer of protection (sometimes multiple layers of encryption) to secure your web browsing.
  3. Keep the OS and apps up-to-date. Check for updates at least twice a week for the OS and apps. System upgrades provide multiple security and functionality updates. It’s good to keep apps up-to-date to avoid security exploits.
  4. Only download from trusted sources. If it looks bad, it probably is. Stick to trusted apps stores such as Apple App Store, Google Play, Amazon: App Store.
  5. Have a good secure plan. Use a pin code or passphrase to secure access. It’s important to use adequate mobile protection. Because hackers and virus makers are always crafting new threats. Monitoring the latest security threats is a great idea as well, to know how to stay protected from them also.
