Security has become an important aspect of our lives. Starting with the daily use of your smartphone or PC to more complex gadgets, it’s important to prevent third parties from tempering with the software running on these devices in order to obtain access to your personal data.

Just about every major brand in the smartphone business offers at least 3 years of security updates for their products, but it looks like Amazon is more generous than most of these companies.
