Oh dear, more to worry about, or not.
|Data captured by smartphone sensors could help criminals guess codes used to lock the gadgets, say security researchers. |

The data was useable because sensors can gather information with more freedom than apps loaded on the device.
Researchers said several different smartphone sensors could be subverted.
