Mobile Safety Tips
It is important to be aware and safe online at all times while you're using the Internet whether it be at school, work, home, or even on an Internet enabled mobile device such as a mobile phone, smart phone or a wireless personal digital assistant (PDA). MySpace mobile gives users with mobile devices much of the same access and features available on a desktop or laptop computer. The same basic safety rules and tips apply when you access MySpace and the Internet from mobile devices, but there are also extra precautions to be considered when using the Internet on-the-go:
- Don't access the internet while driving. Mobile devices are great for being in contact while you're on the go, but should not be used when your full attention is required for other activities such as driving.
- Don't save login and passwords on mobile devices. Given their portability, mobile phones and devices can be easily lost or stolen. If your login and password are saved on your mobile device anyone who may have possession of that device can access your MySpace profile, friends, photos, etc. If your device is lost or stolen, immediately change your MySpace password and call your carrier to deactivate the device.
- Be aware of your environment. No matter where you are accessing the Internet on your mobile device, look around to see who may be watching you or trying to see what you're doing. Put your mobile device away if someone you don't know is trying to see your profile or personal information without your consent.
