One of the worst things that can happen in this age of cell phone addiction is going out of town and losing your phone, iPad or laptop. But it happens all too often. Here are a few common-sense security tips that can reduce the sting if you misplace a device or two.

First, make sure you back up your phone to iCloud, your computer or whatever method your particular phone supports. Then, ensure it has a passcode. If you can change the settings to set a passcode that incorporates both letters and numbers, that’s even better. Also be sure to enable “Find My iPhone,” or your phone’s equivalent, as this will allow you to wipe the data if it gets into the wrong hands.

If you travel with your laptop, it’s a good idea to encrypt your hard drive. This is an easier process than it may sound –typically, all you’ll need to do is enter a password immediately when booting up the computer.
