McAfee has a pretty cool infographic about how you lose your mobile phone and some basic statistics around the mobile security situation. It’s interesting to note that we embed so much personal data in a device that is so often misplaced and stolen. As consumers, we should be more conscientious of our data and the potential for identity theft. Whether you want to buy a product like McAfee is up to you. Keep in mind, you can always take free steps like encrypting your phone’s data and setting a password. It’s too bad RIM has ditched BlackBerry Protect because we would have recommended that too.
