Raunchy pics bonanza
MORE than a quarter of young adults keep ‘raunchy’ photos of themselves on their mobile phones.
Fifty-two per cent of smartphone users aged between 18 and 35 said they had pictures on their handsets that they wouldn’t want others to see, according to an online survey by app developer Appysnap.
Of these, more than half said the photos included ‘rude pictures’ of themselves, while 48% said they had similar images of their partner or love interest.
Others confessed to storing embarrassing drunken photos and vain ‘selfies’ on their phones.
The poll of 1,928 users across the UK found that people in Liverpool, Newcastle and Bristol were the most likely to have explicit pictures on their phones.
Only a third said they protected their phones with a PIN or password.
Paul Smith, co-founder of Appysnap, said: “Anyone with raunchy images in their gallery should perhaps check their settings, to ensure they’ve got a password or PIN on there.
“Worst case scenario, you could accidentally end up posting these images on social media and that would be a disaster.”
