Re: Security risks of security hyper-awareness

said by Steve:

I never logged into Facebook from my phone, did not set up email, and did not even install my SSH keys into the vSSH secure shell application.

The "did not set up email" (if you meant *any* email account) prevents you from wiping the phone remotely using an exchange email server (as an alternative to the phone locator and remote wipe services available through icloud which you didn't setup either).

With so much effort put into ensuring that you don't recover your phone one has to ask: was the phone really lost/stolen or did you throw it away

or to put it nicer: was anything of value on the phone to begin with?
