Most of us keep practically our whole lives crammed inside our devices. It’s our camera, our journal, our payment. While we’re certainly smarter about mobile security than before, and encryption is becoming more mainstream, it doesn’t hurt to further educate yourself on the topic.

To help you understand what data you’re releasing, and how to keep it private, here’s a deal that won’t cost you a dime.

Mobile Security: How to Secure, Privatize, and Recover Your Devices is a guidebook to a safer phone experience. It will teach you what happens when your phone is not secure, and how to identify threats, as well as what to do about them.
