    Privacy Issue: Droid Incredible Saves The Sites You Go To

    The Droid Incredible, wants to keep your browsing to itself. It takes screenshots of the sites you look at, and doesn't give up that data easily.

    Instead, it's nearly impossible to get rid of it. The photos persist after you clear your history, and will even stay in the memory of the phone after you perform something major, such as a factory reset.

    That means that unless you know where to look and go in and delete the images manually, they'll potentially be on your phone forever.

    Just think ? you could sell your phone to someone, and they could have a creepy record of everything you did online.

    This is getting patched up though, but it's scary because of all the sorts of information a phone can keep.
