If you're like me, you use your smartphone for recording photos and videos and storing other important information. But did you realize that all that precious data is just a second away from disaster?
All you have to do is drop your gadget or leave it unattended when a thief walks by. All your data will be gone, and possibly in the hands of a criminal.
Fortunately, my advertiser Carbonite has updated its app with great new protective features.
If you have a Carbonite subscription, the app still backs up your iOS or Android gadget's photos and video to Carbonite's secure servers. Plus, you can browse your computer's backed up files on the go.
For Android users, the app can remotely locate a lost or stolen phone, make a loud noise, lock the gadget, capture a photo with the gadget's camera or wipe all your personal data. And these features don't even require a Carbonite subscription!
Cost: Free; Backup features require a Carbonite subscription.
