Seucrity considerations prior to hardware service
Authored by: RussellK on Aug 11, '06 07:55:35AM

A couple of quick initial thoughts on reading this:

1. In Safari, using the "Reset Safari" command is an easier, more complete way of wiping the browser clean. It erases the browsing history, empties the cache, clears the Downloads window, removes cookies, removes saved names and passwords plus other Autofill text, and clears Google search entries.

2. As long as we're being really paranoid here...attaching a note telling the technician to call you for password info/assistance is a good idea, but remember that anyone who "intercepts" your shipment can call the number you provide as well. If/when the tech calls you, ask for a number to call him/her back so you can verify you're calling the Apple office at which they claim to work.
