Protect Your Bubble Shares Consumer Tips to Keep Private Information Safe on an iPad this Winter
Atlanta, Jan 05, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) --
Many people put more information than they should on iPads, like personal, private information that an identity thief could easily help themselves to and quickly destroy a person's credit. Fortunately, there are ways to protect an identity if an iPad is stolen or lost and Protect Your Bubble has a list of tips to help.
Turn On Passcode Lock - The iPad is a computer, and a computer has password protection services. Enable the passcode feature on it and stop thinking of an iPad as a glorified e-book; it is not.
Turn Simple Passcode to Off - A 4-digit passcode can be broken given enough time and a determined thief. A full alphanumeric code, on the other hand, is virtually impossible. Spend five seconds unlocking the iPad or five months clearing a name and credit.
Require Passcode Immediately - So what if when left alone for more than a minute there is a need to enter a code again It is far better than explaining to credit card companies and the police details of a stolen iPad.
Set Auto Lock to 2 Minutes - A thief does not need much time to modify settings while walking out the door with bank and credit card information. Consider this strongly.
Turn Erase Data after 10 Tries to On - The most sophisticated software cannot crack a passcode in under 10 tries but be sure to help the kids with the code.
Use a Password Manager - Passwords work, but they work when used correctly. Various apps, such as 1Password and AllClear ID are effective tools for maintaining difficult to remember passwords.
Avoid Untrustworthy Apps - Jail-break is fun, but the fun can be very ephemeral. Don't trust apps outside of trusted websites or the iTunes store.
