Smartphone users should be aware

There is no need of special introduction about the smartphone because people do know about it, rather than any other gadget. People of today's generation prior their mobile than any other things. But the thing here is people are unaware of the threat by using the smartphone.

The motion sensor of the mobile will be helpful to detect our secret codes in the phone.

And here is the brief explanation of the story, Hackers can steal your PINs and passwords just from the movement of your phone when you type in the information.

The experts have unveiled how easy it is for malicious websites and installed apps to spy on you.

Cyber experts at Newcastle University in the UK have shown it is possible to crack four-digit PINs with 70 percent accuracy on the first guess – 100 per cent by the fifth guess – using just the data collected via the phone's numerous internal sensors.

Despite the threat, the research shows that people are unaware of the risks and most of us have little idea what the majority of the twenty-five different sensors available on current smartphones do.

While all the major players in the industry are aware of the problem, no-one has yet been able to find a solution.
