Indians don't use passwords for mobile phones
Norton had recently revealed in a survey it had conducted that only 72% of the online population use mobile phones which is far lesser than the online population on computers.
The survey was mainly targeted at studying the mobile habits of Indians. The aspects covered were the usage habits, importance given to the personal information, and understanding the importance of security on their mobile phone.
90% of the people who were surveyed said they they use computers for browsing the internet, and less than half said that they use their phones to access internet. Further survey details said that of those who use mobile on internet use it for social networking sites (60%), reading news (44%) and messaging online (42%). Other major uses that were listed include banking and payments, navigation, and online shopping.
60% of the Indians have understanding that the mobile threats are potential but only 62% of the people use a password to enhance their security. A password is a simple yet effective gate that prevents loss of information and at times theft of device. 17% of the users had no idea that their phone can be tracked remotely by using GPS navigation software.
The survey highlights the need for the Indian population to understand the need for security in their mobile phones. Such knowledge could be extremely helpful in both keeping data safe and also retrieving the phone if it is lost.
