Mobile Devices

Mobile devices include mobile phones, tablets, pagers, and portable storage devices, such as USB drives. Often people store a lot of personal and sensitive information on mobile devices, and they can be as vulnerable as computers and other electronic devices.

Protect your mobile devices:

  • Follow the same protections that you do on your computer.
  • Store as little sensitive information as possible on the device.
  • Keep your mobile device physically secure.
  • Do not leave it unattended.
  • Use a password or PID to access your device.
  • Disable features that connect to the Web or other devices when they are not needed.
  • Use storage encryption.
  • Wipe the mobile device clean of all data before disposing of it.
