dont know why MC is worried about Near Field

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-13422308
More than 99% of Android phones are potentially leaking data that, if stolen, could be used to get the information they store online.

Re: dont know why MC is worried about Near Field

It amazes me how much data we leak all the time. Call me paranoid if you want but the amount of times I see some application that on first appearance seems like a fun thing to have then after you scrape the service just turns into a marketing survey. We all use things like face book, gprs and stuff believing it to be harmless then realise the amount of personal information we give away.
If someone asked me all my favourite movies, books, names of family members , where I live and even know exactly where I have been and how to get hold of me  I would tell them where to go but often all that information is available through sites I use and apps on my phone.
There are people out there compiling as much data as they can about us. Not that I have anything thing to hide but the first thing the police would do if they had to investigate me was check my internet activity and mobile phone records. I remember once when someone drove off the motorway having a kip and caused a rail crash and the police released a statement saying he was up to the early hours on a chat site which probably caused the tiredness  Shocked
If you have an internet connection and a mobile phone you are living with a couple of grass's. Probably why Bin Laden never had either.
In fact me just typing Bin Laden in this post has probably been flagged up by the security services for worth a quick look  Grin
I have a Blackberry by the way which is a bit more secure than most phones IMO.
