Tech Tips

Keeping Your Computer Secure – Forgetting to logout of your computer poses a security risk with any computer that is accessible to other people. Someone could sit down at that computer and continue working from your account, doing damage to your files, retrieving personal information, or using your account to perform malicious actions. To avoid misuse by others, remember to logout, restart, or lock your computer screen whenever you leave it.
