The most dangerous day for your cell phone is this weekend...the 4th Of July. Last year in 2020, there was a 37% increase in damage and lost or stolen phones. How can you protect against your best friend being a casualty?
To help protect your phone, experts say you should:
- Use a floating waterproof case to avoid water damage
- Store your phone in a safe location while celebrating
- Keep your phone out of direct sunlight so it doesn’t overheat
If your cell phone does overheat, do not put it in the freezer. Instead, you should move it out of the sun and let the phone slowly cool off.
Stay safe and have a fun 4th!
Now a few examples of what NOT to do to your phone this weekend.
