Broswer return to home page
Is there a way to have the browser homepage (lets say I was Google for instance) to show up after a period of inactivity?
I often leave my blackberry unattended at work and don't like to use the screen saver. Sometimes I am in a website that contains sensitive data and would like the browser to either close or return to the homepage after a period of 3-5 mins inactivity occurs.
Is that possible? Is there an application that can do those things, such as some kind of timer?
Nothing natively on the browser or the BB.
Who controls the websites you're using?
My online site requires a login to gain access. Every time you open a page, a timer starts and/or resets. If your Berry/Desktop is inactive for 5 minutes, you get logged out by the server. If the site has sensitive data, and doesn't have a feature that's similar, you should probably encourage them to make it so.
Another way to do what you want is to use Alt + the escape key, go to the home page, and click on the padlock icon to lock the unit. That won't cost you anything.
