Project Description

Okay so I want you to pick up your phone and do the following:

1 - Uninstall every app that you have not used in a while.  Bonus points to you if you also uninstall any apps that you may have used recently but aren't actually a necessity.

2 - Of the apps that remain, spend some time to go over the types of permissions they have access to. Disable any permissions you feel are unnecessary e.g if you  have a banking app, it doesn't need to have access to your camera as an example.

3 - If available, download and install any updates for all of your apps

iPhone User - Your default security settings are pretty substantial. However I would like you to go ahead and setup the 'Find my iPhone' tool on your device. Follow all the instructions that have been provided here - https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT205362

Once it has been setup, check to see that it actually works. Visit https://www.icloud.com/#find and test to see if you can locate your device.

Android User - You will need to tweak some of your default security settings.

1 - Make sure Google Play Protect is active and updated

2 - Set your security policy updates to update automatically

3 - Set up the find my device tool. Once you have set it up visit https://www.google.com/android/find?u=0 and test to see if it works.
