Still, much of their usage can be characterized not as guarding, but as simple entertainment.Study respondents confessed to using their phone in common settings like a movie theater (35 percent) or while driving (55 percent), while others throw courtesy to the wind, and take out their phone during a dinner date (33 percent) or at a child's school function (32 percent).Even more turn to their mobile devices in other unexpected places, like the shower (12 percent) and in various houses of worship (19 percent).
With nearly 426 million phones sold in the first quarter of the year, according to Gartner, that's a whole lot of snooping.
People who are 18-to-34-years-old are more likely to snoop (47 percent) than those who are older.
"People view their smartphones as an extension of themselves, taking them everywhere they go even the most unorthodox places from the shower to their commute, from the dinner table to the bedroom," Marc Barach, Jumio chief marketing and strategy officer, said in a statement.

The latest Mobile Consumer Habits study, released Thursday, sounds vaguely reminiscent of the sordid pages of last month's Cosmopolitan magazine: According to the report, smartphone usage is so prevalent in Americans' daily lives that nearly one in 10 admit to having used their phone during sex.
(Hat tip to the Center for Media Research.) On top of what people admit to doing with their own phones, almost 29 percent admitted to snooping on the phones of others.
When asked of single people, the number jumped to 42 percent.
Detailed within a study conducted by Harris Interactive, approximately nine percent of American adults admitted to using a smartphone while engaging in sexual intercourse with their partner.
