You are in the middle of an assessment , things are thick. SE is the only option but you are short on time. Users however are sloppy and the question begs to ask:


What’s the Worst that could happen on an unlocked screen for a few minutes?

Well Take these pointers at hand:

  • Users Leave screen unlocked obviously browsing
  • IT Guys have majority of their tools come with web interfaces , they are probably using very nice passwords, they however don’t care about you hovering around.
  • Most computer users click on a field but don’t focus on the screen while filling in forms especially tech savvy ones ( we only need to see as they type)
  • Shoulder surfing is ignored by most
