Understand why locking your device with a password is the most secure option. Understand the benefits and shortcomings of fingerprint sensors, to implement the strongest security.
- Even if I have set up strong access security,…mobile devices present data vulnerabilities…before access is even granted.…The lock screens themselves present risks…as they offer functionality and information…before the need to authenticate.…I want to make sure my lock screen…is setting me up for success.…First, let's answer the question of when to lock.…If I go to Apps, Settings, select Lock screen,…I'll then scroll down and select Secured lock time.…
Secured lock time gives us a wide variety of options…when the lock screen will automatically be engaged.…I can have it engaged immediately…after the phone goes to sleep,…or several different increments of time…between 15 seconds to one hour of inactivity.…This makes the question how much inactivity time…should I have before the phone automatically locks?…This depends on the way I use my device.…It can become quite annoying if I need…to constantly enter my password or fingerprint,…but an unlocked phone is an insecure phone.…
Therefore, I recommend setting this to no more…
