LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- Last week, Apple announced ways to make your cell phone less attractive to thieves -- an activation lock feature, which requires reactivation only with your Apple ID and password.

However, even if you have your phone, identity thieves try to find ways to get your personal information.

The Better Business Bureau of Southern Nevada says it's easy to keep them away in this Rip-Off Alert.

Have a password on your smart phone. It makes breaking in a lot more difficult.

Remove your auto log because if you were to lose your phone, identity thieves would have access to all your information.

Change your password frequently or for every account that raises risk of credit or ID theft.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
