HP Jornada 520, 525, 540, 545, 547, and 548 - Protecting Your PDA from Unauthorized Access

Introduction
This document explains how to use the HP security utility to safeguard your HP Jornada and the data it holds.
Setting a password
When a password has been created and enabled, it will have to be entered each time the HP Jornada is started up, and whenever the HP security application is opened. To set a password, follow these steps:
  caution:
If you forget your password after a password has been enabled, the HP Jornada must be restored to the factory default settings, erasing all data that has been stored on it.
  1. Tap Start, Settings, and then on the Personal tab, tap the HP Security icon.
  2. On the Primary tab, enter a four-digit password by tapping the on-screen keypad.
  3. Select the Enable password protection check box.
  4. Tap OK.
  5. Save any unsaved data in any open applications.
  6. Perform a soft reset by pushing the red button on the back of the HP Jornada once. A soft reset will not delete any saved data.
  7. You should now be prompted to enter a password.
Setting a Password Delay
The delay feature is convenient if you frequently turn your HP Jornada on and off to conserve power. It allows you to set a short delay time before requiring the password. To set a password delay, follow these steps:
  1. Set your primary password.
  2. Select the Delay activation after suspend for check box.
  3. Using the input panel, enter a number of minutes for the delay.
Creating a Reminder Password
To create a reminder password, to be used in case you forget the primary password, follow the steps below:
  1. Tap Start, Settings, and then on the Personal tab, tap the HP Security icon.
  2. On the Reminder tab, use the input panel to enter a question phrase in the Question box.
  3. Enter the Answer to your reminder password Question. The "answer" is your reminder password.
  4. Select the Enable reminder password check box.
  5. In the Prompt after box, enter the number of times you want to try your primary password before HP security prompts you with the question for your reminder password.
Enabling Security Logging
Use security logging to record all attempts to access the HP Jornada, and any attempts to modify the password settings. The log file can be viewed on the HP Jornada or exported as a file to save or edit on the desktop PC.
To enable security logging:
  • On the Log tab, select the Enable logging check box.
    To use security logging:
  • Entries will appear in the table on the Log tab.
  • To clear all entries, tap Clear Log.
  • To export the log to a file, tap Export Log.
