It depends on what type of phone you have - generally, iPhones are more secure than Android phones as the OS is not open source.

You should always keep the phone updated with the latest OS releases to ensure any security weaknesses are fixed.

You should also use a strong password, with UPPER and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols to make it difficult to crack.

These tips will all help to prevent people hacking into your phone.

Ok, then the phone is more secure than others, as long as you keep it updated and use a strong password :)
