The first smartphones that came out, that is to say, the original iPhone, was not much of a concern to the people using it—from a security and privacy standpoint. Similarly, the first Samsung smartphone was not much of an issue in this regard either.
However, as technology advanced and we became more and more reliant on it, our phone started collecting more and more data about us, which is scary if you think about it.
Your phone knows a lot about you! Phones such as the iPhone X and the iPhone 11 (iPhone 11 Pro or the iPhone 11 Pro Max) pose a threat to users from a cyber-security standpoint.
Not only those, but Android devices—the best smartphone and cheap smartphones included—also collect a ton of information about their users, and that is unsettling in a way.
