    Introducing Mobile Security Configuration Wizard 1.1
    VERSION 1.0 IN 2016
    VERSION 1.1 IN 2017

    What's New and Improved?
    • New: All mobile security threads created after 1st, January 2017 will receive a security-level status.
    • New: Refined form-filling experience.
    • Improved: Support for Android, iOS and Windows Mobile.

    What is the Mobile Security Configuration?

    Users can create their own, individual security threads to share their Mobile devices' security and receive feedback on areas to improve.
    Getting Started

    All members are required to post under the Mobile Security Configuration only, to share and ask questions about their own security setup.​

    Members are advised to keep One active topic for their current mobile config, per year. Users can edit and update their threads, following this guide:
    How to Update your Security Configuration, Without Creating a New Thread!.

    If your thread was created on or after 1st January, please update your existing thread. Otherwise create a new config for 2017.


    What should I call my thread?


    Please include your Username in the thread titles. This is helpful to everyone involved and makes it's easier to find your security setup thread using search.

    Avoid naming it "My Config".

    Future Updates
