Gear: Asus Eee Note EA-800, eReader Tablets.
I was recently asked about password protecting files with the Eee Note and yes you can do it. Like I mentioned in the video some files are personal. The default settings allow anyone to view all notebooks and ebooks.
The two levels of password protection:
- Allows you to add a password to lock files
- Allows the 1st and the same password to be typed at "wake up"
How to add a password to the Eee Note?
- Go to Settings, then go to Security (6th item down)
- Type your password and click OK
I like using the 1st level because I don't like locking my entire system up every time the system goes to sleep. It reminds me of the unlock button in the iPhone or the passwords in Windows, a waste of time.
Once you have set your password you can lock your notebooks and ebooks. (top left icon is the lock)
