    Social engineering to protect your data

    Advertisement



    Here's a security idea... a bit of social engineering to help protect an unlocked phone if it's stolen (perhaps before it auto-locks)

    Everyone I've showed my BB to with this home screen picture presses the K key and locks the phone! Only those who *know* about BB's are less likely to be fooled.

    On the Bold, the [*A] key is also assigned as a Quick Dial key to lock the phone. That prob still works if you don't use keyboard shortcuts (dial from home screen is switched on). If so, you can just change the graphic to

    "Press and hold the [*A] key to unlock"

    ;-)
