Keep your personal information and University data safe when you travel with a laptop or mobile device by following these simple security tips. Remember to update operating systems, applications and anti-virus software. Don’t use the “remember my password” feature or access personal bank accounts or work accounts from a public computer. Be cautious when using public wireless networks for your own devices, and disable Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when not needed.
