I'm not sure whether you guys experienced losing your phone or not, you prolly might want to read this post cuz you can never know someday you might lost your phone. I mean I never thought that I will lost my phone but yes, I did lost my phone in a friend's house party, last year. I know right, IN A FRIENDS's HOUSE. Blame myself for always leaving my phone everywhere and I finally get to taste what is like for losing a phone.
I mean no one will ever expect their phone will go missing, I seriously never expected but what happens, happened. Contacts, important notes, pictures all gone. Worst things is, I never have any security protection. I DIDN'T EVEN SET A PASSCODE LOCK. I'm not sad that my phone is gone, I'm sad that the things inside are all gone. Luckily I didn't take any weird pictures lolllll. So I just have to accept that I lost my phone.
So here's a few tips for you to keep your phone protected, well you never know if one day your phone just gone * pfttttt...*. I mean if you left it at somewhere and it's gone, someone prolly stole it. It's Malaysia, I think there's only 1 out of 1000 people will return your phone.
1. SET PASSCODE LOCK
Just incase you have anything important inside your phone, the people who stole wont get to check it ( I do know people who save their passwords in their phone notes ).
Good thing if you're an apple user, do sync to iCloud so you can at least have a backup. If i'm not wrong they have this Find My iPhone thing.
How bout Android phones?
Good news for Maxis users, you can now sign up for Maxis Norton Mobile Security app that designed specially for Android users.
One thing risky about Adroid phones is that because they are so popular, there number of untrusted sites, third party apps and physical thefts that will hack your mobile activities and personal data, including passwords even if you didn't lost your phone.
I highly recommend to get this Maxis Norton app for your Android phone's sake.
