Smartphone apps can harvest very personal details\ud from the phone with ease. This is a particular privacy concern.\ud Unthinking installation of untrustworthy apps constitutes risky\ud behaviour. This could be due to poor awareness or a lack of knowhow:\ud knowledge of how to go about protecting privacy. It seems\ud that Smartphone owners proceed with installation, ignoring any\ud misgivings they might have, and thereby irretrievably sacrifice\ud their privacy.
