comment Is it unsafe to restore backed up data from Google servers?
I guess my concern is if my device was compromised, there could be malware (system/configuration) files that get backed up and transferred over with the backup restore. I'm assuming the device has a root kit on it and there are X files that have malicious scripts on them. On a PC we advise people to never restore files from a compromised machine. Why is it ok on Android?

comment How trustworthy is Firefox?
Why do you have any more reason to trust Microsoft with all your information (OS/root level access to everything you do on the computer, in addition to possibly video/audio recording of your actions) then you do with Mozilla? Or for that matter your computer manufacturer who can infect your firmware? The fact is, you don't.

comment Why did customer services say using symbols in a password is insecure?
why does every bad password policy question become a hot topic on this site? these are so overdone and the answer is always the same. more entropy, and more randomness = stronger passwords. [Insert XKCD comic here]

comment Possible to prevent Juice Jacking by only connecting USB pins 1 & 4?
I dont have the rep to post is as an answer but apparently you can accomplish this with a peice of tape - instructables.com/id/USB-Condom There are also other devices now available that achieve the same purpose such as this one amazon.com/Plugable-Universal-Charge-Only-Adapter-Android/dp/… and this one amazon.com/gp/product/B00QRRZ2QM/…
