Email Security

Hey Marvin here Curve 8530...
I am trying to tighten security on my device. I just do not want the typical "can I use your phone" person snooping inmy email... Not that I have anything to hide, just some things are private and I wanna keep it that way...

When I goto Email Settings > Options > Scroll down to Create User Name, this takes me to a Create a login screen which reads:::

Currently, without having a login, you have secure access to BlackBerry Internet Service for your email settings. If you decide to create a user name and password, you will be required to log in each time.
This will be a permanent change!

By creating a login for your BlackBerry Internet Service account, you will have access to your email account settings from a browser on a computer.

Complete the following steps:

1. Create a login
You must create a user name and password from your BlackBerry device.
NOTE: You will be required to log in each time you access email setup on your device

2. Validate email accounts
You must type passwords for all of your email accounts to resume email delivery on your BlackBerry device.

Then there is a cancel and a next button at the bottom which I have not hit the next button because it eads rhat this is a permanent change and do not want to permanently change device settings which I do not need...

Is this function something that makes me create a user name and a password to open my email from the homescreen?? I hope so because that's what I am wanting but I'm not understanding what that is... Will someone explain that to me please and thanks,,,

No. That function creates a username and password for your mobile service provider BIS account, where you go to SETUP your email accounts pushing to your BlackBerry.

 

If you want a SINGLE password on your ONLY your email folder screen, check out EveryLock and iLock on AppWorld. I don't know IF they lock the email folder, I they do picture folders and SMS.
