Most of us continue to get many e-mail messages that end with things like ‘Sent from my iPad’ or ‘Sent from my Samsung Galaxy S8’. 

These default ‘signatures’ on most mobile devices are designed to advertise for the manufacturer of your device without your input. 

They know that many of you won’t bother to change the defaults and they end up with millions of free mini-ads. 

With the number of messages that we still see using these free mini-ads at the end, it’s pretty obvious that this approach is working for them. 

Proclaiming that you’ve sent a message from your mobile device can in some cases be a minor security risk, so we should all take a minute and update our smartphones email messaging signature today. 

For business users, an updated signature is a great way to send contact info with every message and help recipients become aware of your company’s blog, website or other important marketing tools. 

We have posted the links to provide step by step instructions for iPhone, Android and even Blackberry devices to stop you from being a pawn for smartphone companies.
