Almost everything in daily life can be done with a cell phone or tablet. These devices are more important to us today and often easier to use than a computer. Since we usually carry our mobile companions with us 24 hours a day, we are always online.

I have therefore added three new articles on cell phone security to BaseCamp – my free basic digital self-defense course:

Part 1 –
Privacy and cell phone security: The basics for everyday mobile life.
. Similar to a driver’s license for a car, you’ll learn the basics to get your cell phone and apps under your control.

Part 2 –
Privacy and security for the iPhone.
In the article you will find a step-by-step configuration guide plus my recommendation for apps that protect your online life and your data.

3 – GrapheneOS – Private and secure without Google. GrapheneOS is a privacy-friendly operating system. Together with a Google Pixel phone, this is a safe and trustworthy combination. In the article you will find installation help, important settings plus my recommendations for apps that protect you and your data.

PS: The article is unfortunately not quite finished yet, but will be soon.

Important! If you haven’t looked into Self-Defense BaseCamp yet, I recommend you go through the basics first before reading the “More Security for Your Phone” series of articles. You can start with that here.
