Enable security features on personal devices

Portable personal devices such as mobile phones and tablets can be easily lost or stolen. If they fall into the wrong hands, and they aren’t properly secured, a criminal can quickly unlock them and access valuable personal details, data and accounts.

Take a moment now to check you have the following security features switched on:

  • PIN, password, fingerprint or face ID to access your device
  • auto-lock after a period of inactivity – secures your phone or tablet by locking the screen after a set time
  • the tracking app on your device – can help you to locate your phone or tablet if it’s been lost or stolen
