Family gatherings, catching up with friends, the kids nativity play… there are so many reasons why we get snappy with our smartphones in the run-up to Christmas.
But, the memories that you’re trying to preserve may not last as long as you’d hoped if your phone doesn’t come home with you at the end of the day.
According to new research from Mozy, Saturday evenings in December are the most dangerous time to be playing fast and loose with your phone as this is the time of year that you’re most likely to lose something and smartphones are the most-lost items. In fact, 70 per cent of us have lost gadgets like smartphones and laptops.
And, if it’s the memories on your phone that you value most, you’re not alone. The majority of people who took part in our survey told us that it was the pictures, contacts and other documents on their phones that they missed most.
If you want the peace of mind to snap happy this Christmas, make sure that the stuff on your phone is protected. Sync your phone with the Mozy app and make sure that your laptop is backed up with Mozy. It’s simple, automatic and you can even get a version for free.
