Your Computer’s Security

Hello all.

I just wanted to take a second to remind everyone that we all should have our screen savers set to require passwords to get back in. If your computer goes to screen saver and when you move your mouse you get right onto your computer where you left it, you are not secure!

To set up this function, minimize everything on your desktop, then right-click on the wallpaper and pick Properties. Choose the Screen Saver tab and make sure there’s a check mark next to “On resume, password protect.” Then click OK.

With this set up correctly, you won’t have to worry about getting back to your office to log off your computer if you’re not there at the end of the day. Or even when you walk away from your computer for a few minutes.
