Default How Safe is Your Data With Android?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='!5791977/what-your-android-phone-is-sending-out-without-encryption' target='_blank'>!5791977/wha...hout-encryption</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Start capturing traffic from Android phones, and you'll learn something about security."</em></p><p><img src="" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Lifehacker points to an article which highlights some of the security shortcomings of Android. What isn't clear from the article is if this capture was done over Wi-Fi or the cellular network. To my limited knowledge, there isn't an easy way to sniff 3G data, so this should only be a concern if you are on Wi-Fi. In other words, if you're concerned about who may be able to see your data, stick with your wireless data plan when using apps that may compromise your security.</p>
