Phone Safety

lockscreenFrom AzDA:

A recent survey showed that only 36% of people use a lock screen on their smart phone. Setting up a passcodeĀ is a simple and easy way to instantly increase your security. Misplacing your smartphone is more than just a lost device, it gives instant access to all of your private information on your phone, like photos, email, and your social media accounts. Take 30 seconds and set up a lock screen for your phone.

It is quite possible that a lost phone will be seen as a data breach and a HIPAA violation depending on the information you have on the phone. Another prudent measure you should consider is a service to “brick” a lost phone. ThatĀ is a remote command that renders the phone useless.
