I lock my personal and work laptops because they both have confidential things on them because of my job. The odds of someone knowing that the information is there, plus knowing how to get to it, are very slim, but better safe than sorry. :P
I don't care about my phone though. I don't do anything sketchy or private on it, really.
Yes!!! I started doing that in the 8th grade. My mom used to think or still thinks that she can use my phone like it's hers. So, when I'd receive a text or a call she'd read it/pick it up then tell me after which really got on my nerves. Because not only would she read it, but she'd delete it after she's read it. There were times, she'd forget to tell me about a text I received; so, I never got back to whoever messaged me. Yeah, since then, I've locked all the phones I've had. Not that I don't mind people rummaging through my phone, since I have nothing to hide BUT when people delete it without my permission... Let's just say I'm no longer me.
I always do! I have several passwords that I rotate on my electronic devices.
Especially phones. They carry so much personal info, and get lost and stolen all the time due to their size, that I think it is foolish to not at LEAST put a four digit PIN on it. Unlocking it each time would only take 2 seconds.
However, the family members in my household, have the password to my phone and computer in case of an emergency.
