The French data protection authority (CNIL) has published a study on mobile phone security, Telecompaper reports. The CNIL provides 10 recommendations on protecting personal and geolocation data when using a smartphone. Teenagers are more savvy about the risks of personal data storage than adults, according to a survey. The survey also found that 89 percent of smartphone owners store contacts and 40 percent store confidential information like bank details, passwords and building entry codes on their smartphones. CNIL recommends not putting confidential information on handsets, using complicated PIN codes and automatic locking, as well as deactivating a phone's geolocation and WiFi capabilities.
