It is the best way to keep your phone safe from being contaminated with any malware or a casual intruder, trying to take a sneak peek into the device. The less you keep your phone away from yourself, the safer it would be. If you leave your phone unattended and away from you; it’s equivalent inviting intruders and hackers.
