What is your study programme?
  • You are advised to use a passcode, preferably one that is six digits long. A pattern lock is a lot less secure, because it can be easily seen by shoulder surfers.
  • Configure the settings on your mobile or tablet to activate the screen lock whenever it is not in use, preferably immediately but in any case within five minutes.
  • Activate the tracking system (under Android Device Manager or Find My iPhone), so that you can track down a missing device, leave a message and delete data remotely.
  • Don't install dodgy apps and don't perform jailbreaks (as the manufacturer will no longer be able to guarantee device security).
  • Switch off Bluetooth when you're not using it.
  • Don't store any confidential data on your mobile or tablet.
  • In the event of loss or theft, immediately change or block the password for your institutional account (and any other accounts).
