- Set the “Security” preferences in System Preferences so a password is required to wake from sleep or from the screen saver; this will keep others from using an unattended Mac.
- Do not use the same account name and password on your Mac that you use to log on to other campus services.
- Never create a guest account, anonymous login, or an account with blank or obvious password.
