Most people love how their smartphone can provide a single point of access to their personal information, financial data, medical records, photos, videos and gaming apps, as well as work-related email, calendars, documents and other business and professional resources. Unfortunately, hackers and online thieves love smartphones as well, particularly because the easy access that these phones provide can be used to their advantage.
