Making your BlackBerry more secure

What can you do

Hayden James, the webmaster for the PinStack web site sent in this for you BlackBerry users out there. . .

Making your BlackBerry more secure

Your BlackBerry device allows access to your email account, so you must take steps to secure it against misuse by others. The following instructions will help you do so:

Set the password and timeout option:

Note: The password must be 4 to 14 characters in length. You must not enter a password composed of identical characters or a natural sequence (e.g., 1, 2, 3, 4), as it will be rejected.

* Whenever you put down your BlackBerry, lock it by selecting Lock from the main menu.

Finally, make sure your desktop computer and network are secure against unauthorized access.
