Which one?
Samsung is known for bad update policy so you need to be more specific.

SIM card security:
SIM card is not passcode protected
You should enable it.

Secure DNS:
Cloudflare
Cloudflare is bad at malware and phishing protection. Better use NextDNS or Quad9

Anyway, nice to see you're using Bromite (y)

It's the May 1 2021 security patch, added it to the topic

I'll enable it and update it here when i do it.

And yep, NextDNS looks way better than Cloudflare (especially on the experimental blocking trackers feature for vendors like Samsung, looks interesting) so I'll switch.
