Lock It Up: Your devices need some tough love – give ’em a solid password. Oh, and don’t stop there. If it’s handheld, give it an encryption hug. Even if someone grabs your gear, your info stays on lockdown.
Wi-Fi Wisdom: Surfing the web while on the go? Play it smart. Either roll with a trustworthy Virtual Private Network (VPN) or jump on your phone’s hotspot. But steer clear of sketchy free Wi-Fi and those iffy free VPN services – they could spell trouble.
Guard Your Gear: Buffet calling your name? Bathroom break? Don’t ditch your devices, even for a second. In a blink of an eye, a sneaky thief can swoop in and swipe your stuff.
