Keep Privacy a Priority.
As the world is becoming a global village, there are many threats that are posed to the privacy of individuals.

Its recommended that they go to their phone settings and disable the background analytics if are turned on. The GPS should be kept closed when not in use, so it’s not easy to track one’s real-time location. Its suggested that the user switches to incognito or VPN to avoid any infringement of privacy. There are several different and free VPN available on the google store on the Android system. the most important recommendation is to limit access of your android device to different apps and social media accounts on your phone, as these accounts register the basic to every other detail right from the time you sign up on them.
Let the network service you are using not deceive you.
Check for the annual contract terms that are renewed every year. It shouldn’t matter if the data speed offered by your network is good, what should be considered are the terms of the contract that are shown to you. We suggest the android users check for the conditions of the contract as not all flaws lie in the mobile development only, they can be found in the service that you have subscribed too. Sometimes, these service networks use tools that can easily sneak in all the data that’s saved on your phone. that’s why we suggest you read and review the contract terms before renewal of it every year.
Set data limit notifications.

As the social media and dependence on technology is increasing, the need for the extra use of data has increased too. People do not like to spend a second without the internet and switch to mobile data where WiFi isn’t available. This leads to an extra and careless use data, without any track for the allowed limit. We suggest our readers turn on the limited data notification on their smartphones when the data bundle is near to consumption or expiry. Setting data limit notifications bring great ease in one’s life. The option that an alert notification is sent before the data expires or ends can prepare the user and allow him to purchase another pack before he loses it.
