Chapter 8. Customizing User and System S... > Applying Account Security: Security

Applying Account Security: Security

As you might expect, in the Security preferences pane, shown in Figure 8.12, you can configure a number of options regarding system security. You can specify whether a password is required to wake up from sleep or screen saver. If you are running a truly multiuser machine, or if your machine is located in a rather public place, this option is recommended. For all accounts, you can also disable automatic login, require a password to unlock each secure system preference, require that a user be logged out after a specified period of inactivity, or use secure virtual memory. Secure virtual memory is a mechanism by which the system encrypts the virtual memory being used by the applications you are running. Finally, you can enable FileVault protection in this pane.

Figure 8.12. In the Security pane, you can turn on FileVault protection and set other basic security preferences.
