Survey Shows We’re Too Lazy About Mobile Phone Security
From the blog:
A new survey shows U.S. consumers are shockingly lax about basic security on their mobile phones.
Most of us have no qualms about making purchases via mobile, and the vast majority of us use the same phone for business and personal use — two common vulnerabilities in web security.
Yet in spite of these yellow flags, few of us use phone-locking passwords and duplicate the same passwords for mobile apps that we use on our desktops.
The survey [PDF] in question comes from security firm AVG and research and consulting firm The Ponemon Institute.
