People do not realize how much they need to protect themselves when it comes to using these devices. For example, Facebook, so many people post what they are doing when, where, and with who. Now, this gives an opportunity for someone to come burglarize your house when you are gone. And it was all because you tagged yourself at the mall with your friend!

Internet users of all kinds of devices need to be more aware of what they are doing on the internet.
