Mobile Phone Protection

How to find your mobile phone quickly and easily

As the owner of a shiny new Android phone, I would be devastated if I lost it.  Have you ever lost your phone or had it stolen?  It's not just the cost of the replacement that is a worry but also the personal information contained on the handset.

I've recently discovered an amazing app which help locate your phone, even if the sound is turned off!  Amazing.

Mobile phone security

Most of us will probably have some sort of protection for our PC's, but how many of us have the same sort of protection for our smart phones?

The app - which is free to download - also backs up your device and provides protection from malware

Mobile phone back up

You have the option to upgrade so that even if you do lose your phone, you won't lose your data.  It's securely backed up to the cloud which is easily accessible from any web browser.

You're more than welcome Jane.

The other important thing to remember is to password protect your handset but make sure you have your name and landline number showing on the wallpaper (background thing!) to help anyone who does find it to return it to you :)
