Gee I wonder why a gvt agency would go out of their way to make sure consumer devices are "secure." ..........


maybe coz they just woke up?


If you read one you've read them all. For most who are "plugged in" those points are already known. Too bad most consumers don't see these things and some won't even care. As far as platforms are concerned Android seems to be the only one with no links on how to do stuff.


I actually found this article helpful and updated my security settings.


I'm definitely going to password protect my blackberry soon.
