Have you ever asked yourself where you would be without your Smartphone?
We all live in this digital world where we find ourselves using our smartphones to connect with everyone and everything, they provide us with our music, photos, videos, games, calendars, TV and so much more – the list is truly endless..
A new consumer has emerged known as the “smartphonatic,” defined as someone who ‘changes shopping, banking and payment behaviour when they’ve switched to a smartphone.’ In short term: you’re addicted to your smartphone!
If you’re panicking at the thought of being without your Smartphone there’s a good chance that you fall into the “smartphonatic” category.
Smartphones have clearly found a way into our hearts, a study on ‘mobile mind-set’ found that just about all smartphone owners (94%) worry about losing their devices, and 73% have felt panicky when they’ve misplaced their phone.
These figures are not surprising when you take into account how much we actually rely on our smartphones on a day-to-day basis, losing your smartphone in this day in age would cause significant stress when you take into account how much personal information we store on them.
Norton hit the streets and asked the public how much they thought their smartphones were worth to them, would you wipe all of your data off of your phone for £500? would you throw your smartphone into a river for £1000? these are just some of the questions asked in the video below:
If you own a laptop or computer it is probably fair to say that you have some form of anti-virus software or internet security software on it to protect you against unwanted threats.
Do you do the same on your smartphone or tablet?
