    All Android devices are different, but they all come with some basic security and privacy features. Here are the important tweaks to get started.

    Number 12 isn't present in stock Android and is only to be found in Verizon devices. For everyone else there is an app on the Play Store called Locker that will do the same thing, without requiring root.

    As for number 15, carriers love to delay security updates as much as they love to delay upgrades. Unfortunately, that situation isn't going to change anytime soon, and thus owners of carrier-subsidized units get screwed.
