Choose carefully
Here are a few tips:
• To help prevent spyware, phishing, or viruses, use apps
from trusted sites, like Google Play.
• In Google Play, check the app’s ratings and comments
before installing.
• If you doubt the safety of an app, don’t install it.
• Apps use up memory, data, battery, and processing
power—some more than others. If you’re not happy with
how much memory, data, battery or processing power it’s
using, uninstall it.
• Monitor children’s access to apps to help prevent
exposure to inappropriate content.
• Certain apps may not provide completely accurate
information. Take care, especially when it comes to
personal health.
Note: When installing an app, make sure you read the alerts
that tell you what information the app will access. If you
don’t want the app to access this information, cancel the
installation.

• Portable storage: Store your pictures, videos, audio and
other media files. You can remove the memory card at any
time and transfer it to another device.
