There are different levels and types of security features that often accompany your mobile devices and you can easily activate them depending on the one you consider most suitable for you at any point in time.
These security features can range from setting up a screen lock for your device to encrypting your phones or setting up SIM card lock to setting up mobile anti-theft protection etc.
