How do I set a PIN on my mobile device?

We have become a wireless society. iPad, Tablets, Kindles, Nook, Droids, Androids, Notebook and Laptop Computers, just to name a few. They are everywhere and some people have more than one device to be concerned about. Identity theft, being the number one crime in the U.S. (almost 7,000,000 from January 1, 2012 to February 21, 2012), is much more easily done via mobile technology.

When initially activated, unless the user has previously set a personal PIN on their device, they will be prompted to establish a new PIN.  If a user chooses not to establish a PIN, they will not be allowed to connect with Valencia’s email system but the other functions of their device will continue to operate as normal.
