If our desktop and laptop machines are personal computers, our smartphones are probably the perfect examples of extremely personal gadgets. They are our best companions with whom we spend more time than our best friends and even our most intimate relations.
In our times, smartphones have broken the barriers of of being just a tech gadget that is used to make calls, receive messages and similar jobs. We now use it in ways where the thin line between personal and professional life almost burs. Our smartphones keep our contacts, personal pictures, videos, documents, emails and all kind of sensitive data that we might not wish others to peep into.
Since our phones are the containers of our darkest and deepest secrets, we do not want others to access in case it is lost. There are situations when we have to hand over our device to our family members, or lend it to a friend or even a stranger. Well, there is nothing bad in handing over our phone to others, but when it also means leaving our personal information and secrets to the disposal of others, we need to think twice!
