Do you travel a lot and use those free charging stations for your phone and other devices? Officials around the world are warning travelers who plug their devices directly into the free USB ports at airports, hotel rooms, cafes and other public places about “juice jacking.” This is when someone on the other end uses software to harvest every name, email, and cell number in your contact list. Because they’re physically connected, it’s possible that your device doesn’t even have to ask if you’d like to share contacts. How can you prevent it? Here’s one idea from SyncStop. It prevents accidental (or intentional) data exchange any time your device is plugged into someone else’s computer or a public charging station. For more information go to syncstop.com/.
