UPDATE YOUR SYSTEM AND SOFTWARE
Before you hit the road, make sure all security and critical software is up-to-date on your connected devices and keep them updated during travel. Turn on “automatic updates” on your devices if you’re prone to forgetting.
OWN YOUR ONLINE PRESENCE
Set the privacy and security settings on web services and apps. It is okay to limit how and with whom you share information (like location tracking) – especially when you are away.
BACK IT UP
If you haven’t taken a moment to back up the information on your devices, do so before heading out. If something unfortunate does happen and you lose your device or access to it, you’ll at least be able to recover the information you backed up.
PASSWORD PROTECT YOUR DEVICES
Make sure you require the use of a passcode or extra security feature (like a fingerprint) to unlock your phone or mobile device in case either is misplaced or stolen.
