The 10 most dangerous things we do with our precious smartphones

I’ve personally been guilty of them all and there are few of us who haven’t committed at least one of the 10 most dangerous things we can with our precious smartphones.


The list focuses on the negative things that can happen to your device or you via data breaches but I would add number 11. Listening to music or talking/texting on the phone when you’re walking. Smartphones are amazing but a lot of us get caught up with what’s happening on the screen and forget to look where we’re going or listen out for danger when we’re using them.

This girl escaped with little more than a bruised ego when she fell into a fountain while texting but a lot worse can happen on a big city street if you’re not looking we’re you’re going.
