    Should we worry about this?

    Samsung lock screen flaw found; company working on fix | Security & Privacy - CNET News

    My Note 2 is set for encryption lock and password, I don't know if that adds any additional security beyond the normal password protection.

    I'm not worried as it requires that someone has physical access to my phone which is highly unlikely as I'm extremely protective of "My precious"!

    It reminds me of one of the 10 Immutable Laws of Security:

    "If a bad guy has unrestricted physical access to your computer, it's not your computer anymore."

    I am also not concerned because my phone is never out of my sight....ever. But I also am careful when on public free wifi. In todays' technology we need to do all we can to protect ourselves.

    Am I the only one that notices that I can Slide my menu tray down when the phone is locked and it allows me to select anything I want and automatically unlocks it? I really am not worried about anything because as said above it is always by my side.

    In swipe to unlock, yes. Not with password or pin or pattern lock. Swipe isn't a security. It's only used so you don't accidentally turn on your screen by bumping the screen i.e. in your pocket

    I don't worry as I'm the only one that touches my phone. (and I am NOT going to lose it. It doesn't fall out of my deep pockets and I never leave it anywhere due to brainlessness. )
