It is always good practice to have precautions in place in the event that the worst happens. Once it is out of your possession we have no control over what someone does with your device or the app.
Things you can do to make your data as secure as possible
- Perform regular backups
- Have a local device password always on
- Utilize apps such as Lookout that offer malware protection and privacy scanning
- Utilize apps such as Lookout that allow you to locate your device, with the ability to remotely lock your device and wipe your data at any time.
