Well people assume that there would be more than one picture, expecially If its a girl going to prom. I mean my prom was two days ago and I took at least 4 pictures.....

I always tell them to look with their eyes and not their hands, but they insist they hold the phone, then look through them all anyways which is terribly obnoxious.

Op could have been holding the phone and the mom reached up and touched the screen. People do that to me all the time :p They always seem to think there's more than one picture to see.

It's always safer to keep the phone in your hands while showing a picture to someone. At least then you'd be in control of scrolling. Tough shit OP.

To be honest, it could also be a phone software developer's fault. For example, if you put "secret" photos into separate folder, BUT gallery software indexes all pictures...

#59 Have you ever considered the simple facts that phones are small and are easily lost or stolen? Lots of them are worth a lot of money, which makes them even more likely to be stolen. Storing private pictures of a sexual nature on a phone is playing with fire, and the OP got burned. Someone could have swiped it from her and then thought it would be hilarious to send all the dirty photos to everyone in the phone's address book before wiping it clean and using it for their own purposes. They could be put on the Internet and damage your reputation for years to come. Your car is private property, but that doesn't mean you leave the keys in the ignition. That would be pure idiocy and nobody has any sympathy for someone who does that (and your insurance won't pay out either). Your bank account is private, but you surely aren't giving anyone else your credentials to access it (and you won't get your money back if you do it). If there's sensitive contents of something you privately own then it's your responsibility to secure those contents. Everyone agrees that people shouldn't be snoops or thieves, but in this day and age there are plenty of ways to protect your digital information so that you're not made a victim of your data. People lack sympathy for OP because it's trivial to avoid the problem she experienced and any sensible person is already doing what they can to protect themselves in this brave new world.

@121, I regret to inform you that you have terminal variation of tunnel vision. Technologies evolve rapidly. 5 years ago there were no android. 6 years ago there were no iphone. 8 years ago there were no youtube. Smartphone you currently own might become obsolete next year. Unless you waste all your time tinkering with smartphones (and do nothing else), it is very easy something this trivial even if you're IT specialist (that doesn't deal with smartphones). You could overlook program feature, program behavior could change due to update, and so on. Besides, even if they're "easily stolen" smartphone is the closest thing we currently have to a "personal data wallet/storage". Unlike desktop PC and laptopt, you bring smartphone with you everywhere you go, it has OS (unlike thumbdrive) and internet connectivity.

#128: Well, fine. Treat it like there's no point to securing it and don't employ ANY security at all because you think it's too hard to keep up with. You have been warned. The security doesn't have to be perfect. Nobody's going to be spending supercomputer power on your phone trying to break the encryption on whatever app you chose to encrypt your sensitive data. The flaws that mathematicians call "breaking" a modern encryption algorithm usually are purely theoretical. Even when a practical exploit can be demonstrated, the typical result will be in weakening the encryption to something it would take a supercomputer decades to crack through brute force instead of millennia. Down-thumb away, jerks. It doesn't make me any less correct and every one is a vote confirming your own ignorance. I studied mathematics and cryptography to help secure our world so that you wouldn't have to. The very least you can do is show a little respect when I try to educate you on the basics.

@121 I'm completely aware phones gets stolen, hence why I do not leave anything of real secret nature on my own phone as I previously said. However were not talking about it getting stolen, lost etc and if photos were to leak by means of that - I'm sure those photos getting out will be the least of the owner's worries when they've lost an item worth a lot of money. (While I respect and do agree with the point you're trying to make - I'm really not going to get into this part of the discussion for lack of the original post's relevancy.) ...The point of the fml was about people going through ones phone after being handed a single image, and I sympathise because I've had photos of tracking numbers with the items I've bought saved in my phone when my mother in law continued to scroll and ruined her own present from doing so. Shes done similar things many times from just snatching my phone from me and It's just really rude to go though a persons phone without their full permission.

135, 1. It is hopelessly impossible to keep track of every detail of every technology you use every day. 2. It is stupid to expect phone's user to know about security risks by default, unless phone comes with a short document explaining how to secure data on your phone. Said document should fit into one paragraph of text. 3. Everybody is "correct" - because every opinion normally has some reason behind it and said reason makes sense to people that have that opinion. 4. IF you get that emotional ("jerks" part) after a single counterargument, don't argue.

170- It is common courtesy to not scroll through someone's pictures or look through their phone. What they have on their phone is their business, not others'. It was pretty rude of his mom to just go through like that, assuming there would be more than one picture. I would never touch another person'a phone unless they handed it to me and showed me what to do to if there was a continuation of the first thing they showed me.

Men's nudes aren't "gross", but it's true that women look better naked. Men are built utilitarian style (boxy and hard), but women are built more art-like with thier curves, roundness, and softness. Their bodies are really just more 'interesting' to look at. But that's not to say that there isn't some beautifly built men out there... it's just more commom for women.
