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 phone in the toilet or leave your iPad 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 an app with great protective features.
For Android it backs up your photos and videos in full quality to Carbonite's servers for free. Plus, 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!
If you're an existing Carbonite customer with a computer backup plan, you can browse your computer's backed up files on the go with either an Android or iOS gadget.
Note: Effective October 2, 2013, Carbonite has discontinued free photo and video backups for iOS gadgets.
