Smartphone Users: Are they overconfident?

A survey by Trend Micro highlights an interesting trend among Smartphone users.

 

Smartphone users are more concerned about "losing a phone or contact information and personal data than Web threat infections or phishing schemes".

 

In fact, 44 percent of Smartphone users surveyed believe that surfing the Internet is just as safe, as surfing on their PC.

 

While Smartphone users share the same concern about losing their phone or contact information with other mobile phone users, it is amusing to see their misplaced confidence over web threats.
