A German computer magazine, Chip, warns that criminals can misuse the smartphone's satellite navigation system, its Wi-Fi connections and mobile connectivity to locate a user for potential mischief.
According to News24, smartphone users should trust only https-secured sites in order to use their passwords and usernames, and emails encrypted with S/ MIME standard.
Experts suggest that users should be careful while uploading photos, documents, device backups and sensitive data to cloud servers.
The report said that if a user must use apps like KeePass or LasPass to create most complex password possible, they should understand that such a service to synchronise codes across a variety of devices and browsers means that the software service has access to that sensitive data. (ANI)
