If you are worried about security on your Android cell, you need to make sure that a thief or hacker cannot easily get around your PIN code to unlock it. We show you how to protect yourself on our Samsung Galaxy S9 demo unit.
The idea is to EASILY encrypt the phone and have it decrypted on boot. Without your PIN code being entered before the unit boots up, it will not display calls, alerts or alarms (because it is not running yet) and will be much less subject to hacks.
