  1. Useful in case you leave your phone somewhere and another finds it and has a good Snoop into its contents to extract useful, sensitive information you may have in apps on your device eg financial, banking, personal relations etc. Especially if you do not have a screen locking password enabled or your phone is not encrypted or you have no SIM lock code etc. They can get in and basically do as they wish with your information on your device eg empty your bank accounts, make expensive phone calls, stalk you, spy on you etc. Sounds ultra paranoid, but it is all possible and most people are unaware of such risks or how to self protect from them.
