Android Phones need a better security than you get stock
We recommend Kaspersky Mobile security, it provides Anti-Virus, Document encryption, Remote locator, remote wipe and Call and text filtering.
If you need to make secure phone calls there are a number of encryption apps like Redphone.
Apple’s iPhone’s have many of those features built-in but you need to set them up properly.
-Dont use simple passcode
-feature to wipe your phone if passcode is entered incorrectly 10 times
-passcode lock siri
-can require passcode at regular intervals (ie every ten minutes) for maximum security.
-encrypt backups in itunes
-dont use wifi for sensitive data
-check app permissions before installing
-Only turn location services on for essential apps like map programs(they are on by default)
-Enable find my iphone
gives you location of phone if lost or stolen
allows you to remotley wipe your data if the phone is gone, can always restore from backup
-only known viruses for ios are for jailbroken devices - do not jailbreak!
