3.8.1 Ensure 'If Lost, Return to... Message' is 'Configured'


This recommendation pertains to configuring a lock screen message.

A lock screen message will allow an honest by-stander to more easily return a lost device.
This message need not identify the owner by name, but should reference a phone number or email address to contact. Perhaps the help desk of the organization.
