DPS has enabled a feature that allows PowerSchool mobile device apps to discover our PowerSchool servers. Because PowerSchool allows access to student data, it's very important that devices you use with these apps have passcodes. It is highly recommended that all users passcode protect these apps.
Without a passcode, practically all information on your mobile device may be viewable by anyone who gets their hands on it. This includes email and student information!
To configure a passcode on iPhones and iPads, go to Settings > General > Passcode Lock. See this link to learn more: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4113
Android devices vary, but you should be able to set a passcode in Settings. Once in Settings, look for Security, Lock Screen, or Screen Lock. Here's a general-purpose guide for adding a passcode on recent Android devices that may help: http://www.tomsguide.com/us/pin-pattern-locks-android,news-17756.html
