"Hey Mike, you know computers, how do I not get hacked?"
"Stop doing those dumb 'What Industrial Solvent Are You?' quizzes, delete Facebook and don't reuse your passwords."
"Hahah yeah, but seriously, what app for my phone should I get?"
@mike also using good passwords helps; ideally even if you reused a password from a site that just used bare MD5 with no salt for its passwords, you'd still be safe. The whole Ⓑ network is about 45 (SHA1) exahashes/second at the moment; resisting that for a year would require a 90-bit password like "made exams icl rab ha gavin anne grips" or "VKTvG4OB6y1uC>" or "dddbaqjzsltnozkdqzwz".
(And a password manager on your phone could totally help you not reuse passwords.)
@mike now wondering what industrial solvent I am...
Q: What apps do I need to make my phone more secure?
A: You need less apps to make your phone more secure, not more.
Q. But. But. Is there an OS with focus on privacy I could use on my phone to make it more secure?
A: Yes, you could try LineageOS.
Q. Cool! Does it run the FB app and WhatsApp?
A: I'm off to the pub down at the end of the road, if you need more advice... 😉
@mike I'm definitely Tetrachloroethylene. maybe hexane
