Your digital activities can be monitored and stolen without your knowledge or consent. Adversaries secretly watch your every digital moment online. Unfortunately, you are unaware of this situation unless you are told by someone that your data was lost or stolen.
What if your phone was lost for 5 minutes, you could go crazy, driving you nuts. Without finding the phone, your blood pressure could spike up, panic attack could happen on you. It’s because your sensitive information’s were stored on the phone. The data from the phone have never been backed up or moved to an addition external device.
Do not make yourself in a very risky situation for losing your sensitive data from your smart phone. If you had them backed up regularly, you would not have worried about misplacing the phone for days or months because you have a copy of all and they can be re-stored to your new phone as you wish.
