How You Can Keep Your Phone Safe While Traveling

Traveling Tips

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.

Read on to learn how to keep your phone safe while traveling.

Use a strong password or biometric protection

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.

Avoid keeping your phone in your back pocket

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.

Public Wi-Fi? Beware

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.
