    I let the guys at work use my wifi tether in the lunch room as our company blocks a lot of sites, but my question is would it be possible for them to access files on my phone or the other way around through just a wifi tether?

    I don't think so, but then again... all the risk is yours. Maybe you'll be the first to need LifeLock on his Android phone.....

    Unless your work friends are pretty good at hacking, then doubt it.

    Are you talking about passwords and whatnot? Because they can access your photos and music and stuff by mounting your phone.
