Read on to find out the top things that people should never do with their mobile devices:

1. Drive while talking

Let’s just get this out of the way: Driving and talking on a cell phone is dangerous. As numerous studies have shown, talking while driving can be as dangerous as driving drunk. Quite often, people who talk on the phone while driving will find that they sometimes forget where they are and what they’re doing. It’s a serious issue, and it shouldn’t be taken lightly.

Losing a smartphone without password protection

Too often, smartphone owners leave their devices in a public place without password-protecting them. 

3. Access banking information

Although most banks now allow users to access their accounts from a smartphone via downloadable applications, it’s not always the best idea.

4. Download applications from unknown sources

Android handset owners have gotten into trouble for downloading programs created by unreliable sources. Upon doing so, the applications installed malware on their devices, and all kinds of trouble ensued.

Share personal information over unsecured networks

Since smartphones aren’t running Windows, many people believe that the operating systems on their devices are secure. But that’s not the case. 

6. Text while driving

If mobile phone owners aren’t calling while driving,they certainly shouldn’t be allowed to text message others while driving. In the age of touch screens, texting while driving requires a person’s attention to be on the phone, so they can see which characters they’re pressing. 

7. Forgo standard security practices readily followed on desktops

If someone were on a Windows PC, they wouldn’t click on a dangerous link from a social network and wouldn’t browse to unsafe sites. 

8. Access corporate email from unsecured networks

Earlier, we said users shouldn’t share personal information over unsecured networks. 

9. Share location information when away from home

With services like Foursquare and Facebook Places becoming quite popular this year, more and more people share their location information from their mobile devices. 

10. Choose the wrong service plan

Too often, people get into service plans with carriers and pay too much. Some folks think they won’t use their smartphones nearly as much as they actually do and pay huge sums when they exceed plan limits
