Dear MIUIers,
The biggest threats to Android smartphones are infected apps. Infected apps can steal information from phones or disable them completely. You should be careful on the permission of the apps you install. Whenever you are downloading an app from Play Store or App Store, you are asked for some permission and you must go through all the permissions and uncheck whatever not required. It makes sure that your app does not access anything useful. Make sure that you have the backup for your data. The hackers may try to access the data of the phone and delete but backing up will make you feel comfortable to fight against them. Last but not the least, you should never save your passwords on the phone especially the transaction related. As OEMs are in build security antivirus app like MIUI.
