Asus Eee Note EA-800 - Passwords

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:
  1. Allows you to add a password to lock files
  2. 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
If you want the password at wake up then make sure you check the box "Require password when wakeup".  The password is the same for both levels of passwords.

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)
