Security and Technology Ramblings…

Have you set your voice mail up to ask you for a password? Even if you call FROM your cell phone? Well, you should. And here is why…

Your cell phone uses the caller ID incoming on your voice mail to “recognize” it is you and then bypasses the “ask you for a password” prompt.
