Device protection & security

With warmer weather on the horizon, you might just join Olaf from Disney

Is your device ready for spring?

4/14/2014

With warmer weather on the horizon, you might just join Olaf from Disney's "Frozen" in extolling all the future glories of hot, sunny days. A trip to the beach, a frolic through the park, a dip in the pool - these activities can make up for months of hiding from the biting cold.

However, as you spend a greater portion of your time outdoors, enjoying the sun and water, you'll probably be exposing your devices to a number of dangers. During a season of fun and relaxation, your smartphones and tablets face threats of water damage, cracks and bumps. With the right protection, though, you don't have to let these fears keep you from taking advantage of warmer days.

Keeping your devices safe 
When consumers think of mobile device protection, they usually concern themselves with anti-virus and malware solutions. These safeguards are important, but they're not going to be much help when your tablet slips off your lap into the pool or your smartphone crashes to the sidewalk.

In addition to investing in mobile phone insurance, here are a few tips for keeping your devices safe while enjoying the great outdoors:

  • Guard against extreme temperatures. Those 80-degree days sound glorious, but they can harm your tablets and smartphones. Avoid leaving your devices for extended periods of time in your car glove box or other locations where heat becomes extremely intense. It's also good to be conscious of where you put your gadgets outside - take direct sunlight and hot sand into consideration. If you're using your devices, pay attention to performance and temperature to make sure they aren't overheated, suggested The Hindu.
  • Prepare for water exposure. There are a number of accessories you can use to protect your gadgets in the event that you drop them in the pool or spend too long in the rain. For example, Digital Versus described waterproof phone cases as well as rescue packs that help to restore your devices if you do have a water incident.
  • Prevent scratches. Simple screen protectors can help your devices resist scratches and other marks from everyday wear and tear. Other solutions, such as car mounts, keep your gadgets stable on the move, minimizing points of impact.

You can enjoy robust device protection with services such as ProtectCELL plans. These solutions cover your gadgets as well as the valuable information they contain.
