Security and privacy: check your Samsung smartphone now

No matter how careful you are, no one can guarantee with certainty that you don’t have any type of malware or at least a dangerous application installed on your smartphone. In many cases, when they are installed, they do not even pose any threat. The problem comes later when they receive an update commonly called Payload. That’s where the problems start. That’s why we really have to do a check, at least every week.

So to see what is happening on our smartphone we have to go to settings. Then we choose Security and Privacy. Now, it is in this section that we can check the security status of our smartphone. That said, if something is wrong, this is where we find out. On the other hand, if we have visas on everything it means that everything is well configured. Still, there are things we need to check.

Now we are taken to a new screen that briefly shows us what is happening on our smartphone. Apps that have access to the camera, those that access the microphone and also the location.

If we click on that top four we can see something very interesting, which is the usage history. And best of all, it’s available for each of the three things I mentioned above.

But beyond the history there is something else we can do.

If we click on the gear wheel in the top right corner we can see a list of apps that are always allowed at the access level, others that are only allowed during use and also those that are not allowed. This is in addition to those who always have to ask.

It is through this list that we can check if there is anything strange. So if there is an application that you have never heard of, then it is time to remove it immediately.

This is perhaps one of the most important checks we have to do on our Samsung Galaxy smartphone. With so much data that we carry on our equipment every day, we have to ensure that no one can get hold of it.
