Secure?
My "smart phones" have been hacked, so to speak, for 2 months now. Someone managed to set up an Advanced VPN in our devices and complete factory resets do not get them out. They are using the IP addresses. I had no idea these devices were so easy for someone to overtake. I've spent hours on the phone trying to get someone to track the hackers rather than simply flash the devices.
