Password Protected. Canada 150 Recommendation #134

Friday’s= Computer Security

Does every piece of hardware you own have a password?

I am talking about your phone, laptop, tablet and watch. If you lose any of those items could the person who finds them, or has stolen them, easily get into your email or your banking app?

You should also consider USB keys, they are easy to lose and if there is no password the finder will have access to anything that is on the USB key.

Newer phones and tablets have fingerprint and facial recognition passwords. This is clearly an improvement in security and we should take advantage of this technology.

Take a look at all the hardware in your life and make sure that you have passwords on each item.
