Today’s tip is to consider whether reminders or message previews on any of your devices could compromise client confidentiality.
Between calendar reminders and email/text previews that appear while you’re working–or that pop up on your phone’s lock screen even when you’re not using it–much has been written about how notifications are constantly interrupting our workflow and concentration.
But what about the potential for client communication to be unwittingly displayed when you aren’t expecting it? It’s worth thinking twice about whether any pop-up notifications could be revealing private information.
If you can’t figure out how control these settings on your device (not always an easy task!), a quick online search for your particular device or app will show you to disable previews and notifications.
