Introducing Mobile Security Configuration Wizard for 2018
VERSION 1.0 IN 2016
VERSION 1.1 IN 2017
VERSION 2.0 IN 2018

What is the Mobile Security Configuration?

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

To share your Mobile security set-up, post under the Mobile Security Configuration. Remember to use your Username, Model and Year in the title.​

Want to make a change?

How should I name my topic?

To make all thread titles helpful to yourself and others, include the following details:​
  1. Username
  2. Model
  3. Year
Good examples:​
  • Exterminator's Note 8 Config 2017
  • Jack's HTC M9 Config 2017
What to Avoid:​
  • "My Config"
  • "Recommend me some lightweight security"
Future Updates

  2. Keep your own thread up-to-date with accurate information. Minor changes don't always need a thread bump.
  3. Got a question about your Mobile security? Just ask in-thread and someone will reply. It's not necessary to make a new topic about it or hi-jack others' threads..
  4. The threads under MSC Archive cannot be edited. Instead create a new one with your username, device model and year in the title.
