Will a phone theif have access to my contacts list?


If I were to suspend my phone as stolen, would the thief still have access to my contacts? My facebook, and other saved passwords? Phone is a galaxy s2 x if that makes any difference.

Hi Will, Yes, I'm afraid so if you didn't put a locking code on it. Did you register it with a service like Device Manager? https://www.google.com/android/devicemanager If you did, you might be able to wipe it remotely... or even locate where it is!

No, unfortunately. Thanks for the info. There really needs to be a remote "brick it" option.

There is a remote "brick it" option. Sophia just mentioned it -- Android Device Manager. You just didn't enable it.
