Nowadays it is essential to protect our personal data in our devices if we want to buy and sell on the internet. Privacy is the first step we have to take into account. On the other hand, in order to commercialize our craft goods on the internet, we must also take care of other things like, for instance, what kind of platform we are going to use and what kind of technical problems we may face when we want to address the highest amount of potential clients.


• We are going to give you some tips for personal safety and also safety for your mobiles that help you avoid certain problems:

• Be careful when it comes to open attached files to WhatsApp messages, above all when they come from unknown sources. It is easy that your device is infected with some malware through this kind of files.

• When you change your device, make sure you do not leave any sensitive personal information in your old device. You can either degauss it, shred it or use any programme designed to delete the existing information. Another option is to return it to its default configuration so no one will have access to the information you had saved there.

• Once we stop using our mobiles it is advisable to turn it off and avoid unauthorised access.

• Activate the remote location. In case of loss or theft, you will be able to know the exact location of your device through another of your devices, as long as the lost one is on.

• Disable the bluetooth. Even though it offers many advantages it also makes your device more vulnerable to lose efficiency. It is not enough with ‘invisible mode’ to be safe, we should have it completely off.

• You should block your devices after some time without using them. Most of tablets and mobile phones have this option. This helps us in case we lose the device so no one will have access to our personal data.

• Be very careful with the apps you install. Not only can they slow down the device, but also they can access to your personal information in the background or even share your location through GPS from your mobile phone or tablet.

• If any of the owner company of our social networks’ profiles suffers any attack, the first thing you have to do is to change your access password. Then verify if you could have been affected or if your data may have been accessed. If we had some sensitive information like bank account details, we’d better make contact with our bank and in case it is necessary, cancel our cards and get a new one. This way those accounts will automatically stop being active and won’t be used fraudulently.
