One recent trend many businesses are picking up on is called BYOD. BYOD stands for Bring Your Own Device. It is a policy whereby, rather than an employer providing the employee with a device, such as a computer or phone, the employee brings in their own personal devices to work on. It is popular with the majority of employers and employees because it allows companies to save money on purchasing devices, while employees receive greater flexibility over the kind of devices they have to use every day. Today, one of the most important devices are smart phones.
In the United States, half of all cell phones today are smart phones. As more and more people are buying smart phones, businesses are adapting and putting these incredible mobile devices to work. Unfortunately, users can be careless with their smart phones.
