Just a few years ago, it would have been hard to believe that smartphone technology is as ubiquitous as it is today. Everyone from teenagers to senior citizens seems to have a mobile device with capabilities that a decade ago would have seemed like science fiction.
With the boom of new technologies like touch screen tablets, smartphones and a slew of applications that serve to make our daily lives easier (or create fun diversions), also comes new risks. Sometimes technology gets ahead of us before we can really get a grasp on new challenges to our privacy and security.
Most people are pretty cavalier about their phones, setting them on a desk or table during a conversation or meeting and then walking away, lending them to friends, connecting them to a speaker at a party where lots of people are in attendance or leaving them behind in other places that leave them just as vulnerable to thieves. The mobile security firm Lookout estimates that Americans lose about 7 million dollars worth of smartphone technology every day! Many people don’t even practice basic security measures like locking their screens with a password.
If you’re lucky, a do-gooder will be happy to return your phone. But more often than not, it’s too easy and tempting for potential thieves to take advantage of the wealth of information just a finger tap away.
Think about common activities you perform on your smartphone or tablet. Do you regularly check Facebook and email? Do you use applications to regularly pay your bills or do your banking online? For most of us, the answer is a resounding “yes.”
The ease of taking care of our to-do lists through our phones also leaves us more exposed to crimes like identity theft. With so much information stored in one place, your phone can easily become a treasure trove ready to be plundered by would-be hackers.
It doesn’t matter if you left your phone behind in a taxi after a crazy night with friends or if you are surfing the web on an open wireless network, an unprotected phone is like a safe that’s been left wide open!
