What's your mobile pet peeve?
-People have a love-hate relationship with cell phones.
We love using them but hate the way others use them.
-I lived in New York City and people would just walk and talk, and you're like, "I'm trying to get to work."
-People text and drive, and they don't look at the road even at stop signs or stop lights 'cause they're not paying attention at all.
-When you're trying to talk to someone and they are just looking at their phone the whole time.
-A new Microsoft poll found that the top mobile usage pet peeves included checking
phones constantly, talking loudly, not silencing phones when appropriate, using phones during face-to-face conversations, and delaying traffic by using phones.
But some of our cell phone activities like pocket dialing, losing our cell phones, and sharing our locations are also jeopardizing our safety.
-In today's day and age, we keep just as much valuable personal information on the phone as we do on our home computer.
In some instances, even more so.
So, when you're not using a PIN, you're
potentially losing your phone, you could be opening yourself up to risk and what we call "digital damage."
-According to the study, men are technically better at protecting their phones while women are more socially savvy at how they share their personal information.
-Men are better at using the PIN, the personal identification number, or locking the phone with a password.
And women, on the other hand, are a little bit better at things like knowing what kind of information they're sharing online.
-To limit the digital damage, lock your phone, limit sharing
your location details, and defend your phone against Malware by updating apps.
