Update your tablet regularly
Whatever tablet you have it’s important to keep it updated. From time-to-time, you’ll be asked to download and install updates. These updates contain important security upgrades that make sure you’re not leaving your tablet open to online security risks.
Never tamper with your tablet
Android tablets can be ‘rooted’ and iPads ‘jailbroken’. This basically means modifying your tablet so that you can download and use unofficial apps. Don’t do this. Tampering with your tablet in this way can:
Weaken your tablet’s security
Official updates may not work as well, leaving your tablet – and your personal information – vulnerable to fraudsters.
Increase your risk of downloading an unofficial app.
Fraudsters can make apps that look just like your Mobile Banking app, but when you log in you could be giving over your details to a fraudster.
