Mobile users at risk of ID theft

Security experts say that password protection and, where possible, data encryption, is essential. The advent of smartphones has seen the types of information that pass through handsets proliferate and it is now much more common to store sensitive information and work-related details on handsets.

But the storage of increasingly personal information is also on the rise; the survey found that 16% of people store their bank details on their phones and nearly a quarter store PIN numbers and passwords.

Security experts agree that the storage of such crucial details is ill-advised, and advise users to take advantage of the available security features of a phone.
