I am completely PC illiterate. I have a UM175 and I think someone is accessing my WIFI. Sometimes when I log on there is a CHAD with a gold lock that shows up on my VZ access manager. Does this mean someone is using my access? How do I password protect anyone from borrowing my access? If they are using my access can they get into my laptop? Sorry for being so dumb.
There is an option to have a lock code for your VZ access manager. Follow the steps below to establish a lock code:
When you select the "Security Setup" button from the screen above, the following options will appear ("Tools," "Preferences," "WWAN tab," "Security Setup..."):
This option is only available for PC Cards (except for PC3220).
Lock code: Enter your 4-digit lock code and select OK to lock or unlock the PC Card.
Change Lock Code: This is used to change the 4-digit lock code on the PC Card
Current lock code: Enter your current 4-digit lock code.
New lock code: Enter your new 4-digit lock code.
Confirm new lock code: Re-type the new 4-digit lock code.
