Survey: Most people Don’t Password Protect Their Mobile Devices

We live on our smartphones. They not only keep us connected; we rely on them to store and access sensitive digital data, like banking information. And yet, more than half the people (52%) surveyed recently by Kaspersky Labs said they have not password protected their mobile devices. A pickpocket who steals one of these unsecured phones could have a field day accessing all the data and using the apps that connect to shopping and financial companies. By using password or fingerprint protection, you can help protect your data, photos and other personal information from prying eyes and malicious actors. For more information, check out the original article and survey findings.
