  • It never ceases to amaze me on how companies simply don't exhaust every possible angle when it comes to security. I rarely use unsecure wifi spots, and I would urge others to do the same.

  • That's pretty funny. OEMs need to stop using customized versions of things like keyboards; or at least, do it through the Play Store, and not your own separate back end like they are in this case.

    This is kind of a scare-mongering article though, to be honest. As Okie alluded to, even using any laptop on an insecure/public Wi-Fi hotspot compromises all your data very easily, for example.

  • I try to keep only my important stuff out there on wifi areas. I keep stupid stuff secure. I think that is what they told me. I have not too much on my kindle fire. I think I shall keep it that way.
