Mask your mobile devices

Be a security superhero! Mask your mobile devices

Organizations nationwide are increasingly the target of information and data breaches. These can be prevented if everyone protects their computers and mobile devices — including personal devices. Treat your mobile device like your house or your car: Lock it when you’re away from it.

Encrypting your mobile device will protect its information in the event it is lost or stolen.

Encrypting a mobile device means securing your device so that your private information stays that way — private.

Set up your device to lock after 15 minutes (or less) of inactivity, requiring a password.

Program your device to “remote wipe” if you are unable to retrieve it.

Be careful when connecting to a WiFi network outside the UF Health network or any publicly available WiFi.
