    You can choose a passcode for the lock screen, but that's about as safe as a $2 padlock on a hasp nailed to the door. Anyone with a little knowledge can get into the phone and reset the screen to be unlocked.

    You can keep all your important data on the SD card and encrypt it - but if you ever forget the encryption code, you lose the data.

    Cellphones aren't designed to be secure devices. Don't depend on anything to keep the data on your cellphone safe.

    People used to ask me how to keep a cellphone from being stolen out of a car. The answer is simple - don't leave it in the car. Want to keep your bank account password from being lifted from your cellphone? Don't keep it on your cellphone.
