We all need a safe place to put our precious belongings, no one in their right mind would leave their jewelry, money, passports and credit cards in the open. Chances are your most valuable belongings are locked up in safe, where no one can get to it. Today, in this digital age, we carry information that is considered just as precious as our physical belongings – and we don’t even know it. Information such as login credentials, passport copies, home addresses, credit card numbers and other sensitive information is all there for the taking on our smart phones.
Imagine a scenario in which you are travelling in a crowded bus. You have to stand throughout your journey as there’s no space to sit. You are surrounded by people, left, right, front and back – you are something of a human sandwich inside a bus. Pick pocketing thieves frequently ride this bus looking for easy prey. The thieve notices that you have an expensive smart phone – and determine that you’ll be their next victim. Accordingly, with a quick slip of his hand, this thieve steals your smart phone without raising your suspicions. Sadly, not only have you lost your smart phone, but also your personal data is at risk of being leaked.
