Smartphones have become part of our daily life and a growing number of users prefer to use smartphones over conventional mobile phones. Due to a large variety of functions offered by smartphones, such as internet surfing, browsing via satellite, use of applications and many more, Smartphones have become the centre of interest of mobile users. It is, however, very important to know how to use the smartphone in a safe way and how to set the right settings in order to protect our privacy. Smartphones are initially set to perform certain functions automatically, and if these settings are not changed by the user, they can cause safety issues.
What you need to know:
Smartphones offer you unlimited possibilities such as access to social networking media (i.e. Facebook or Twitter), access to e-mails, video streaming, downloading files and many more. Smartphones’ main characteristic is that they offer quick and easy access to the internet.
Most smartphones are set to automatically connect to the internet through their various installed applications. These applications are automatically activated thus connecting your line to the internet and starting data exchange, consequently creating proportional charges for internet access. Data exchange and connection to the internet bear charges according to each subscriber’s data plan.
Charges are calculated based on the amount of data downloaded and uploaded.
Volume of such data always depends on applications used, connection duration, handset type and kind of data used (songs, files, email etc.)
