Do you lock your work computer or laptop when you leave your desk?

I always lock my workstation. It’s kinda like putting on my seatbelt. Because there is nothing worse than your IT boss walking past your desk and noticing you left your computer unlocked. Even worse if you have a dozen tabs open, including Amazon and eBay :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

What about you?

I have my auto lock set to 5 mins. Screen dims at 4 mins so I can move the mouse to avoid getting locked out while reading.

I should increase because due to covid I’ve traveled only 2 times in the past 2 years. So not really worried about my laptop privacy currently.

I always auto lock, and I work remote. One time my kids were smashing the keyboard and replying to teammates. :flushed::flushed::flushed::flushed::flushed:

I always lock it and suggest developing that habit.

Always locking my computer!
The hardest part is to get everyone around to do it also😅
They seem to think that: “what can happen?” And the argument is that it’s extra “work” to unlock it…

Security awareness training is much needed so i might run them through some scenarios about what CAN happen if you don’t lock it up👍
