  1. Android Question

    Thread Starter

    Is there a way to secure your phone while connected via USB? For instance, I have a sim lock on my phone however I just noticed that when I plug the phone via usb cable to any computer, my data/files/etc are there for viewing. How do you secure your phone so that even when its connected to PC another person cannot see whats on phone?

    Hi

    Normally if you set Lockscreen security (not SIM) and plug your turned off phone into a USB port of a computer, the lockscreen should come on first and need a pin or pattern to unlock the phone before you can do anything else. If you plug it in when unlocked already, well, its unlocked. The SIM pin only prevents use of the phone services, not the device in general.
