    Default USB charge only option

    I had a Droid X as my last phone. When you plugged in the USB to a computer you could select "mass storage" or "charge only". "Charge only" gave no access to files or pictures through the computer using it as a hard drive keeping everything private and safe.
    At work we have windows 7 so anyone can log on and access my S5 if it's connected. Is there any way to prevent someone from accessing my files? Or is this the first flaw I've found?

    When you plug in your S5 to your PC, tap on the little USB icon in the S5 notification tray. Un-check the MTP box so people can't access your phone's files.

    (Someone correct me if I'm wrong.)

    On my note 3, I can choose from mtp, ptp, or USB 3,but one of them must be selected. Ptp would probably be the least damaging as it only allows access to pictures

    If you are using the work computer to charge frequently, then I would recommend that you buy a USB charge only cable so that you don't have to worry about this
