    When I plug my phone into my computer, there is no security such as password protection.
    Say if I accidentally drop my phone on the street, anyone can get their grubby hands on it and go through my personal items such as photos and music. How can I change it so when I plug my android into my computer, there will be a password prompt to enable computer sharing?

    Even if you did that, there are ways to get into the memory without using the USB port.

    Don't put anything on the phone that's not securely protected (say well-encrypted, or something having meaning only to you).
