The acceptance and use of personal devices at educational institutions is on the rise, resulting in the education sector’s adoption of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD). The institutions benefit from cost reduction in buying and managing IT devices as users purchase and bring their own devices. Users benefit by accessing learning materials and collaboration anytime, anywhere while on the move via institutional network. However, literature on BYOD indicates that various challenges are faced with usage of BYOD such as loss/stolen devices, malware, lack of policy, user negligence among others. This paper examined the literature in order to identify BYOD challenges, solutions, and guidelines that would inform secure BYOD usage in education.
