The smart-phone has evolved into an integral part of life. Think about it, how many times do you use your phone for some task in single day? Numerous times I suppose. Yet, for a device that is so important, It is shocking... the mistakes people make.....that I find myself making on smart-phones without even thinking about it and the unnecessary exposure to security risks.

Don't get me wrong..they allow us to do price shopping without actually going to multiple stores as well as viewing reviews on a potential purchase by other people, but there are a number of things that we just shouldn't do with our smart-phones.
