Secure Smartphone Tips

Prilock’s Tip of the Month – April 2015

Be sure you have a secure smartphone!
The first step is using the lock screen and coming up with a good number code. This code should be something that isn’t easy to guess.

iOS operating system has several options to make secure PlN’s that are as short as 2 characters (don’t use those) and up to 37 characters long. It is not difficult and just using a 5 or 6 digit PIN adds incredible difficulty to guessing your PIN. Click the link to see how it’s done.

For Android, go to Settings>>Lock screen to set a pattern or passcode. And remember the rules of passwords; nothing that is easy to guess or a simple pattern. The longer the better, but 5 or 6 non-word characters will be fine.
