Keep Your Phone Protected With a Pin Password.

11/11/2009 10:19:00 AM

Yes, you will think how inconvenient is to type your pin before using the phone, but how about this:

Your phone gets lost or is stolen. Now a 3rd party has access to your email, to your facebook and myspace account. If you have an iphone they'll probably get into your itunes account too.

Since they have full control of your email, if one of your accounts is protected they will simple click the "forgot password" link and in a few seconds they will get the necessary credentials to be inside.

Phones are not just phones any more. These devices are now a door to all your personal, private and business life.

If your phone gets lost or is stolen from you, try immediately to change the passwords on all your accounts. To keep it safe, also change your login information on accounts non accessible by the phone.

Report your phone to your Carrier immediately. If you are unsure about your phone's location, at least, ask your carrier to disconnect your data service.

A 4 digit pin code can be typed very fast and will buy you enough time to protect your information
