    hi,
    but i guess they can only buy app for your phone ? so not much of a risk ?

    maybe one of those app guard apps could be used to lock market place ?

    cheers

    The phone has security built in, are you using that? On top of the swipe gesture or PIN / password (Android 2.2 features), you can install additional security apps for individual programs like the market.

    Who actually sees your personal info when you purchase an app.Just goggle correct? Not the app developer. Sorry if this should be obvious.
