Switching from my broadband static connection to my provider for my cell

Post by Shane69783 » Sat Dec 10, 2016 11:00 am

So when I switch of my WiFi on my cell it appears to be a little safer, but when I change to my data connection basically anyone can get into my phone. I'm saying this because I get locations when I look at my Google account and I know that I just changed a feature but it says location was India, I live in the US. I and I just created a new Google account cause earlier this year mine was hacked by someone in Turkey.

My question is can I setup a VPN that works with both ISPs.

If you are not already using a VPN or proxy and you're seeing logins from half way around the world then you are either using weak passwords or one of your devices has been compromised.

If a device is already compromised using a VPN will not offer any additional protection.

I use strong passwords on my cell, I don't use hotspots. What options do I have and no as of right now there is none VPN setup on my phone.

Do your wireless carrier and country when you visit our homepage?

If you are seeing actual access (not attempted access) from outside the US then you'll need to immediately change your password. I suggest that you also enable two-factor authentication.
