      Protecting Your Identity

      With more than 1 billion smart phone users in the world, hackers are find new and easier ways to steal your private information.

      A study lead by NQ-Mobile shows a 200% increase in mobile security threats from 2011 to 2012 with more than 33 million devices infected by viruses.

      Surprisingly 95% of those devices hacked were Android devices because of their open platform system.

      Dr. Jerald Hughes of UTPA says "in order to protect your information change your password".

      Dr. Hughes suggests a longer password with words in reverse such, as "neice1986" would be "8691ecien".

      Hackers have software that can create multiple variations of number passwords and can crack your code in seconds.
