Your phone is a travel essential. You use it to look up directions, hail taxis, take photos and get restaurant recommendations. However, it is also a security risk. Your phone could get lost or stolen, leaving you with the enormous expense of replacing it. Moreover, your phone contains a lot of important data about you, which could be harmful if it falls into the wrong hands.
Whatever you do, do not use “1234” as your password. Keep your phone locked with a strong password that only you know. (A strong password is a combination of letters, numbers and special characters.) Better yet, use biometric protection and require a fingerprint or iris scan to unlock your phone.
It may seem like a logical place to stash your phone, but the back pocket is a recipe for disaster. The phone could fall into a toilet or be plucked out by a pickpocket when you are not paying attention.
It is tempting to use public Wi-Fi networks to avoid cellular roaming fees. But never transmit credit card data or other personal information over these networks, as it is relatively easy for thieves to hack into them.
