KEEP YOUR DEVICE SAFE
Kalyani Pillay of the South African Banking Risk Centre offers these tips for shopping via your smartphone or tablet:
Use an app such as Lookout to protect your device the same way you’d use antivirus software on your PC. The basic version of Lookout is free for Android and iOS phones.
Set a password protected lock screen on your phone and tablet.
Don’t save passwords and PIN numbers on your devices.
Update your apps and your devices regularly – these often contain updated security features.
