Security Measures: Client Devices

This is a brief description of my security practices. I will make several posts and write updates as I make changes.

Client Devices

The main security measure I take on my individual devices is to use full disk encryption and not allow anyone else to use the device (unless there is a guest account).

  • On Macs I enable FileVault
  • On Windows I use BitLocker
  • On iOS I enable TouchID/password which encrpyts the device
  • On Android I use the Encrypt Phone feature

I also install only necessary software, and do regular wipe and resintalls of the OS. I also keep as little personal information as possible on client devices (although this is pretty difficult to do and still have a useful smartphone).
