We have all heard the horror stories about stolen smartphones, laptops and tablets. Sometimes we have a false sense of security, if for no other reason than we have the "It won't happen to me!" mentality. I used to think that too - until Angeline's iPhone was stolen from her back pack at school! Absolute LoJack offers protection of your smartphone and the valuable information held there in the event your device is stolen, as not only can you track stolen laptops or tablets through the software but you have a team of investigators on the case as well! I just recently learned about Absolute LoJack for smartphones, I wish that I had known about this before!
Think about all of the information stored on your mobile devices: photos, financial information, private documents, passwords...if anyone were to steal my phone, I would probably have a heart attack because the criminal could literally wipe out my entire business and all of my finances...it would NOT be pretty. I am guessing that you guys are probably all in the same boat, right? Because we all use our phones for so many things, banking, PayPal and credit card apps, password storage, social networks, personal emails.
Take the How Secure Is Your Phone Quiz to see how vulnerable your phone is - I bet the results will shock (and scare) you!
Do you think you'd be okay if your smartphone was stolen? Think again! Are you guilty of any of the following?
No password on your smartphone
Auto sign-in for banking and financial websites
Take, send, and store nude photos on your device
Click on links in fraudulent emails
Post photos online while on vacation
Post photos online without turning off location settings
Share personal data with fraudsters who call pretending to be from their bank
Sport a naked smartphone, or don’t use a case
Connect to unsecure wireless networks
No smartphone insurance I know that I am guilty of at least 2 or 3 myself...especially the ones about sharing information about my travels - it's part of my job as a blogger so I have no choice in the matter. Smartphone Security Basics are an absolute must and mobile security is about protecting your data, not just the cost of replacing a lost or stolen device.

Hi Jenn. This is an enlightening blog. I would not know what to do if my phone is lost or stolen. The thought absolutely scares me. There is no better time to secure devices and gadgets than now. Absolute Jack is worth checking out. Thank you for sharing the information.
I had a scare last week when my cellphone disappeared temporarily. There's so much information on it! I take steps to protect myself, but I was definitely scared to think of what could possibly happen. The Absolute LoJack would give me a better feeling of security for sure.
