3. Encrypt your phone data

Encrypting your phone is a smart idea. By doing this, it scrambles your data into an unreadable state and it requires your PIN, password or pattern lock to decipher it.

You see in those military movies where a set of codes is required to complete a task – and these codes are kept by three generals probably in different countries, the first person to collect and put together all the codes is granted access, that is exactly how it works – immediately you power on your device, you will need to input a pin, password or pattern to start the booting process. [These codes are regular ones you use to unlock you device screen – so now you have to keep it safe and private]

This means that even though your phone goes into the wrong hands, they will need your to access the phone completely from booting process, meaning that the phone cannot be flashed and it cannot be assessed unless you come and input your code.

To turn your Android phone’s encryption on, go to Settings >> Security >> then tap Encrypt phone. If your phone is not encrypted yet, the whole process may take an hour or so, depending on the amount of data stored.

Also, keep in mind that encryption may slow down your phone. Although this is no longer an issue with newer phones, older phones with slower processors can be impacted.
