Gone are the days when family members fought over whose turn it was to use “the computer” – many people today now have access to their own phone, tablet or laptop and frequently use all of these devices – either for personal use or work. With so much of our lives, friendships, memories and business activities dependant on these portable computers, it’s important that we all know how to properly protect them.

By taking some simple steps like setting a passcode and installing software updates, you can make it more difficult for cyber criminals to gain access to your important data, apps and accounts – even if the worst happens and your device is lost or stolen.

We touch upon authentication when discussing setting a passcode on your devices, but for all the details on using strong passwords, you’ll want to read Thursday’s post.
