New Delhi: A survey revealed that over 50 percent of smart phone users do not use passwords or anti-theft solutions, leaving their devices vulnerable. Nowadays, many people relay on mobile devices to access the internet and carry out online transactions including online banking and social media activities.

The survey by Russia based cyber security Kaspersky Lab showed that less than 48 percent of people password-protect their mobile devices and just 14 percent of people encrypt their files and folders to avoid unauthorised access.

If the device falls into the wrong hands, all these sensitive data from personal accounts and financial details could be accessible to someone else, the study said.
