    Good information Sir. Luckily I use iPhone and I just remember my passwords instead of storing them. I don't want Joe Blo to be able to pick up my phone and get into everything I do. Thanks for sharing this though.

    Good heads up Millard. I use a droid, but I don't peruse the aas scene with it. Then again, what is secure too the prying electric eyes?
