To keep your smartphones safe from any harm or to avoid getting your smartphones hacked you need to

1. Always make your phone a privacy one, don't give out to even friends or strangers, I knew a Android app that can sniff on anything you are doing on your phone and download your messages to the other hackers phone

2. Don't open links sent to you through email, they are spamming mails that consists of phishing links, clicking on them is giving access to the hacker who build the links

3. Don't go through websites that aren't secured with https, I'm sure chrome browsers warns user when they are about to open links that aren't secure e.g Http

Also be careful what you install, even if it's from trusted source, like Play store. The app age and reviews may be of some help. (But even that is tricky). Try to install apps only if you really have to. Where possible check/research for the app you need with an older phone.

When you are connected to internet you have to be very careful no matter what device we are using,IOS,Android or windows or any other operating system because even reputed softares in the pasts were found that they are tracking user's privacy information.Best solution is hardware wallet.
Now even a hardware wallet does not give any guarantees because there are some cases of hacking start to appear or some kind of inside replacement of address. I think in order to safely store cryptocurrency, you can use some kind of smartphone that will never connect to the Internet. it will be harder to hack it.
Hardware wallets have no guarantee because they can still be hacked and again you still need to keep your private key off the hardware, these hardware wallet can get damaged too so still backing up your private key is certain

If majority of us who uses mobile phones still afraid of this incident to occur at random times, never hesitate to install an authentication app. This will help you prevent any unauthorized access of your private log in, at different emails or confidential information that you wanted to control. With this idea, the provision of secure control can be done even if you felt the vulnerability your device of being attacked by spywares of any phisings.

I heard there's alot of app reviews that are fake, even with Google's algorithm filtering them out. If you people are installing apks scan the file first before you install the app.

I trusted some apps like TouchPal when it comes to keyboards. I am not quite used to the default Android keyboard, and maybe that's just me. Smiley
I don't really flash anything in my phone, so I don't have to worry about the root access, plus it increases the risk of bricking my phone anyway.
And no it doesn't even smooth out my phone even by 10%.
It is up to people whether they hold their coins in mobile as I believe that you're vulnerable to plenty of Wifi networks that are hacked, assuming you're trying to get access to public Wifi.

But there are also great features when you have root access.
Somehow you could take off ads that could harm your phone. Some of them might also be the culprit for hacking.

I am using a rooted smartphone and I feel more secured doing so.
I think it depends on how you will use it and not just for tinkering your phone to look good in your eyes.

Smartphones aren't spywares attack proof

If you plan to buy smartphone you should definitely buy Librem 5 from Purism https://puri.sm/products/librem-5/   It is opensource project made from scratch. Hardware and software. Impossible to have any government or correlational back-doors.

now there are various ways from cybercrime to get the private key that we have so to anticipate that, the points you mentioned must be anticipated for every smartphone user in order to maintain the security of our wallet.

Smartphones can get compromised real quick but not as fast as on computer, using desktops PC or Laptop to store coins are more risky than using your smartphones to store coins, I'm saying this through past experience, I always end up formatting my PC hard disk every two to three months because of unknown software that landed on my PC or trojan presence, that's even when I sense their presence on my PC.

I do not know what you need to download from the network/what sites to go to in order to catch any Trojans or other viruses in 2020. I have a lot of friends who already using pc for 5-6 years without antivirus software (except for an annual check (just for peace of mind)) and there are no viruses. Maybe we surf different Internet?

It depends on what OS one has - Linux is much safer than Windows - but since you said that they actually check their PCs, they probably have Windows.
It depends on what firewall they have - and nowadays even routers help on that.
It depends on what they install from the internet, just simply browsing (with a proper browser, not IE) usually won't harm.
And it depends on how they check their PCs, some viruses are pretty good at hiding themselves and afaik installing/running an antivirus when their are already there may not find them (however, booting from an antivirus CD should solve this too).

All in all, it's highly possible to have clean computer if one knows what he's doing.

Everything that you listed is more general, not particular. Now to catch a virus on your PC you need to try very hard. Even the usual Chrome on win will not allow you to download something that may be a virus. Even with pirated content everyone knows the necessary and reliable sites with a long history where a miner in torrent is so rare find

The real fact about how dangerous rooting your phone can be is those dubious, spying apps that steal information on Android smartphones need root access to work undetectable in your phone, it's better not to root your phone at all unless you are a qualified personal who knows the does and don't to stay safe with a rooted device

True! Android system is an open system that is easily rooted by users. iOS is another story. I don't have the habit to root my phone because I always think about those consequences like this. However, a lot of people are lack of awareness about how dangerous it can be to root your phone. They consider giving our their personal information is not that serious!

It's been four good years that I've been using wallets on smartphones to store my coins, I haven't lost a penny on through hacks on smartphones before even after changing several phones, im a privacy kinda person, I don't share phone with any one and I always use 2Fa and finger scanner on my phone just in case.

Everything that you listed is more general, not particular. Now to catch a virus on your PC you need to try very hard. Even the usual Chrome on win will not allow you to download something that may be a virus. Even with pirated content everyone knows the necessary and reliable sites with a long history where a miner in torrent is so rare find

You are 100% correct. Still, keep in mind that people will still tend to download cracks and other shady software and Chrome's "block" is very easy to go around. Some will always think they know better.
Also malware attacking directly the computer if it finds vulnerable/open ports is a reality, don't forget about those. If the OS is weak/unprotected it doesn't matter how safe your browser is.

About the torrent sites.. that's debatable. I remember that most versions of KMSpico download in background a lot of surprises.

Maybe the guy doesn't know much about chrome, well chrome can safe you from unsecured download source or websites and apps but sometimes they get through easily, some spyware are in zip or ear file and downloading trough chrome won't stop this, once you extract the zip file the game is on

Smartphones aren't spywares attack proof

If you plan to buy smartphone you should definitely buy Librem 5 from Purism https://puri.sm/products/librem-5/   It is opensource project made from scratch. Hardware and software. Impossible to have any government or correlational back-doors.
Looking good but I have another more secured smartphone in mind, that's wings mobile, full of security features most especially built for crypto lovers, the first smartphone that has 3FA which is way better than 2FA security

when you have a lot of security on a smartphone it is very good to keep the assets owned on a smartphone but I suggest not to make yourself difficult to access your wallet, at least you make a security key encrypted on your own will be safer because if you use too lots of authentic so when you lose one authentic will make it difficult for you to access your wallet.
