This is true on ALL the mods.
This is a pet peeve of mine that I've written here and on XDA. Imo, there is zero security on these tablets. It's even worse with mods because we have them rooted with USB debugging on, by default.
These are not laptops. There is no way tmk to really lock them down. Lockscreens are nice, but anyone with a little knowledge can easily bypass them and get direct access to your data. Think Windows 98 security, it was a joke.
I use my tablet for two things -- development (obviously) and content consumption. I don't do online banking, I don't shop in Amazon etc. Any passwords I store (like Google or Pandora) I can easily change if my tablet gets stolen. I also use a tool called "keepass" for keeping my passwords secure. I do this on my laptop, as well.
Just keep in mind what the device is designed for, and be wary of its security shortcomings (especially if you root it). Imo, don't put anything on there that you can't change easily (passwords) or could aid in identify theft (your address, SSN, etc).
My device usually has lots of music that no one would like anyway, comic book scans and some "Red Dwarf" videos. And my Angry Birds scores. They wouldn't get much from my tablet.
