    Danger of phone web history

    A stolen phone can make it very easy to commit identity theft if the phone contains personal information and a web browser history, a life assistance company has warned.

    Web histories can reveal a lot about an individual, allowing easier access to their persona.

    A study by CPP revealed that over a fifth of the adult UK population has either lost a phone or had one stolen, and a quarter have found a mobile phone.

    While the research also showed that 92 per cent said they had returned the item to its owner, CPP warned that a thief could run up a phone bill of over £1,000 in just 12 hours.

    And the web history creates an even greater danger.
