How secure is your smartphone password?

I sincerely hope that your smartphone is locked. By that, I mean that if you use a password to gain entry to your device. If you ever lost your device, would the data be safe and secure? If your smartphone displays your "Owner Information," make sure that your smartphone password is not derived from any of your personal information.

The sad reality is that many people still carry unlocked smartphones. Their personal data remain exposed and they think they're fine because they've never experienced a lost smartphone. I've never lost a smartphone, but I know plenty of people who have. Make sure to use a secure password and protect your data. It's not worth jeopardizing.
