Confidentiality & Tablet security


  • Personal photos & other confidential information stored on tablets

Potential solutions:

  • Disconnect the device from icloud so photos aren’t uploaded to the cloud and only remain on the device itself
  • Turn off geotagging so no-one can find out when/where photos were taken
  • Consult ICO (data protection) website for advice on managing personal data
  • Completely re-set the device after each loan so all personal data is deleted before the device is used by someone else
  • Ask the patient to complete a disclaimer
