How can I secure my phone when plugged into a PC?


Android Question

When I plug my phone into my computer, there is no security such as password protection.
Say if I accidentally drop my phone on the street, anyone can get their grubby hands on it and go through my personal items such as photos and music. How can I change it so when I plug my android into my computer, there will be a password prompt to enable computer sharing?
