PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - On today’s APP-tastic and outta SITE – Passtouch.

Phone theft is on the rise these days, but that’s especially worrisome if you use your smart phone to log into your bank account or credit card. Passtouch is a new security app that can block strangers from accessing your phone or tablet’s browser.

You come up with a unique gesture that has to be entered whenever you launch your browser. It’s not foolproof, but it’s another way to safeguard your device.

Checkout the Passtouch app.
