Update your mobile devices
Mobile devices are essentially small computers with software that needs to be kept up to date just like on a PC or laptop. Make sure all the mobile devices in your house (including laptops, tablets, and smartphones) have the latest security protection. This may require updating your devices with a computer. Check the website of your devices manufacturer or mobile carrier for the latest software updates.
Guard your personal information
Protect your phone or tablet device just as you would your computer. Secure your mobile device by using a strong passcode and be cautious of the sites you visit and the information you release.
Think before you download an app
Protect your money
When banking and shopping on your mobile device, check to be sure the sites are secure. Look for web addresses with https: in the address. This means the site takes extra measures to help secure your information. Many sites now feature a color-coded browser. If you see a green highlighted browser, this is a safe site. However, yellow and red sites should be avoided.
When in doubt, don’t respond
Fraudulent texting, calling and voicemails are on the rise. Just like fraudulent email, requests for personal information or a call for immediate action are almost always a scam.

No, the purposes of creating a revocable living trust are to avoid conservatorships, probate, and to reduce or eliminate federal estate taxes. It is not a vehicle for reducing income taxes.
A revocable living trust is a complete will substitute. It can control all of your assets during your life and after your death. When you set up a living trust, you must transfer the title of your assets including stocks, bonds, certificates of deposit, real estate, etc., from your personal name into the name of your trust. The assets titled in the trust name will not go through probate.
No, while a living trust is not necessary for every person it can help anyone who wants to protect his or her family from unnecessary probate costs, attorney’s fees, executor’s fees, and court costs, or who needs to protect a beneficiary’s interest from ex-spouse’s, other creditors, disability or financial mismanagement.
