Smartphones and their apps have made our life easier. Today we can carry documents such as an ID, a driver's license, and voter registration in the same device that we use to communicate. And that is not all! We can make payments and transfer money on our phones by taking our banks with us, and for this reason, we can even leave our wallets at home.
But remember the popular saying, "It's not all roses!" All these resources also require new prevention measures and changes in our routine. Now, because your phone is your new wallet, it needs the same protection! Do not lend your device to other people, not even for a minute, especially not to strangers. Set up a lock screen, whether using a pattern lock, a PIN lock, a password, or even biometrics, preventing a single careless moment from allowing someone else to access all the information in it.
On apps, use two-factor authentication whenever possible (check for instructions at https://cidadaonarede.nic.br/pt/videos/seguranca/verificacao-em-dois-fatores ). If your mobile phone has been stolen or lost, it is important to ask your carrier to block the device's IMEI code and to report the loss to the police.
