The data on your phone is worth $14K: Learn more about the data on this addictive device

By Lookout

You love your phone. It’s the first thing you look at in the morning, one of the last things you look at before bed. You take it to the bathroom with you.
No, we’re not following you around; we’re just like you. We’re all addicted -- 73 percent of us -- to this little device. Mobile devices are like bionic extensions of our arms, connecting us to friends, helping us keep up with work, tracking our health, letting us bank from anywhere, taking important pictures, the list goes on. Each of those turn into precious data points that your phone accesses or stockpiles -- indeed, the data on your phone is worth $14,000!  
However, for as critical to our everyday lives as they are, mobile devices as we know them are really only around a decade old. We believe it’s important to understand the impact of the mobile device, the huge amount of data it holds, and how we keep both safe. So, we surveyed over 700 people just like you.
Check out the results below and get smart about your mobile data and security.
