How to Protect ALL your Data in your Blackberry

Although your BlackBerry Smartphone transmits data over the air very securely to synchronize your contacts, calendar, notes and tasks with your Outlook 2007 database, the Blackberry itself does not store data  securely, unless you enable content protection.

To enable content protection, proceed as follows :

   1. go to Options ( look for the wrench icon )
   2. Select  –> Security and
   3. set Content Protection = enabled,
   4. be aware that you will also be required you to enable a password.

When you enable content protection on your BlackBerry, the BlackBerry will encrypt data that it determines to be sensitive. This prevents someone with physical access to your Blackberry, from connecting it to a PC and extracting sensitive data. This will give you piece of mind, if your Blackberry Smartphone is lost or stolen.

This way you will be able to securely synchronize and encrypt all your BlackBerry data with your berryFORMS Cortado Blackberry Hosting Service .

Excellent information Ariel. I am still trying to figure out my new Blackberry Storm so any little bit of information is helpful to me.

Have a great week.

Thanks for the info Ariel, always interested in the latest ways to keep my personal info safe.

I hope you'll remember me if you learn of anyone moving to "The OC" and I will do the same!

 Best regards.
