Securing Your Devices

National Cyber Security Centre

Devices like smartphones, tablets and PCs are getting more and more secure, but hackers are getting better at attacking them too.

So if you've just bought a new device, or haven't looked at your security settings for a while, you should take some time to make sure you're protected against the latest threats. Fortunately, most manufacturers provide easy-to-use guidance on how to secure your devices.

We recommend you take some time to go through these guides* every few months, or when you get a new device, to make sure you're protected.
