We live in a world becoming more and more dependent on cell phones. It's just a fact of life that without a cell phone of some sort, you are probably missing out on a lot of really cool stuff. That being said, with convenience comes vulnerability. The ability to check your bank account online, save passwords and personal information, even text chat with a friendcan put you at risk.
Most phone hacking isn't a British tabloid trying to listen to your voicemails; it's somebody that you know trying to invade your privacy. On one hand, this can be a disturbing because you want to trust the people around you. On the other hand, you probably don't hang out with super hackers. Either way, keeping your personal data secure should be a concern. You never know.
