Let’s be honest here, the vast majority of us probably use our phones far more for texting, messaging, and web surfing than we do for actually making phone calls. But phone calls aren’t completely out of fashion. The nice thing about a smart phone though, is that you generally know exactly who’s calling you. Unless, of course, you don’t have that number stored in your contacts list. Today, we’re taking a quick look at how you can reverse look up a phone number, and it’s dead easy, so don’t panic.

Are internet ads getting you down? Sick of seeing your shopping history pasted all over your mobile games? We all know that Google is tracking us, keeping close tabs on our preferences, shopping history, and even travel destinations. But those pop up personalised ads can be more than a little irritating.

However, there are ways of preserving some of your privacy if that’s the way you’d prefer things. Want to be as private as possible on your mobile? Then these are our top tips…

Not to secure this information would be foolish, and that’s why we’re here with our top tips for mobile security. If you want your data to be safe, then read on.
