Tip of the Week:

Your Voicemail Could Contain Sensitive Data. Always Protect Your Voicemail With a Password.

Personal and work voicemail accounts may contain sensitive or confidential information. Someone trying to gather information about you or about your workplace may know enough to attempt to log into your voicemail account. Secure your voicemail with a password and delete old voicemails that you no longer need to reduce risk.
