No security on MTP/USB mode?
On my Nexus S, in order to mount the USB storage on the phone, you had to unlock the screen to gain access to the partition. I noticed on the N4 since it uses MTP regardless if the screen is locked or not, a PC or Mac will mount the storage and allow read/write.
Is there a way to secure this or prevent this unless the phone is unlocked/password protected? Thank you!

Re: No security on MTP/USB mode?
I tried disabling the MTP mode check box under Storage in the Settings app, but it is only a toggle (Camera mode or MTP mode).
So it does indeed look like an issue with the N4?
EDIT: I filed a report with Google's security team. Maybe its by design, maybe not... but sent it along anyway.
