Re: Security risks of security hyper-awareness

Sorry to hear about a ~$500 hit.
I'll take an educated guess that whatever value you place on your ability to know what's going on under the hood it's considerably more than $500.
I hope so, no, I know so.
Would you use a free iphone preloaded with unknown apps if offered to you to save the $500?
You'd consider the source of the free offer then decline it.
Obviously at a junction you made a choice to be out $500 than compromised.
IMO, that's still the right choice.
It only takes one app to turn you upside down while the definition of "rogue app" is still being written.

So you use the find my phone app & get your phone back from places unknown.
That leaves you with a phone that can't be trusted.
