People need to be aware that the latest mobile phones can be used against them if they are not careful with data, it has been advised.

A new study from Mformation this week highlighted consumer reliance on modern devices for storing contact details, dates and digital files. However, one expert has commented that this should encourage people to be more vigilant.

Matt Bancroft, vice-president of the sector analysts, said mobile technology is moving fast and more people are taking advantage of the web and data facilities available to them.

"Such a high level of dependency on mobile phones today means that operators need capabilities to help minimise risk and maximise trust," he added.

Consumers recycling mobile phones also need to ensure that when trading in their used handsets they ensure all of their personal data is removed and all contact details are saved for use with their new device.
