SPAR – Cybersecurity Tip of the Week – Lock Your Mobile Device


This week’s tip is a reminder to use some type of locking mechanism for your mobile devices, whether that is a PIN, password, or biometrics. Besides the fact that a lock screen can help stop “butt-dialing” or opening applications when you don’t want to, locking the device protects the data on that device.

A bonus tip – be careful what you use as your lock screen display. While you might want to see a picture of your family, think cautiously about using any picture that can give away personal information.
