  1. I also wanted to leave a note to your readers: Please read a book on security if you have the iPhone. It took me about 8 hours to get my iPhone totally secure to where hackers could not hack into my iPhone.

  2. I knew there was a reason why there is public wi-fi everywhere we go nowadays. I learned a long time ago to do a password that is a City followed by numbers for example: Phoenix5692. I also change my passwords every few months. I have the iPhone, so this makes me a little ticked off.
    Great post. Very informative!

    1. The first thing iphone and ipad users need to be worried about is to make sure they don’t lose the device. And by securing the device with a passcode and installing Apple’s Find My iPhone app they should be able to both prevent data loss if the device is lost or stolen, and have a good chance of recovering the errant device. But that’s just the beginning.

      As personal mobile devices and services are used to access sensitive business information, they are also driving the need for greater levels of trust in mobility – from both users and IT managers. Yet this study, as well as recent first-hand research from Juniper Networks into mobile threats, shows that trust may not yet be warranted.

      “People are using their mobile devices to access the most sensitive personal information. Over three-quarters (76 percent) of global respondents report they use these mobile devices to access sensitive data, such as online banking or personal medical information.

      This trend is even more pronounced with those who also use their personal mobile devices for business purposes. Nearly nine in ten (89 percent) business users, often referred to as prosumers, say they use their mobile device to access critical work information.” New, Surprising Facts About iPhone Security http://www.macobserver.com/tmo/article/new_surprising_facts_about_iphone_security/
