Keeping your data safe is a full-time job when you are on the go. The last thing you want to do is lose access to important documents or emails after getting a phone call from the IT department at work. You will have to pick up your computer from home. To make sure that doesn’t happen, it’s essential that you keep yourself and your data safe while traveling. Here are five tips for staying secure on the go:

Back up your data regularly

You should back up your data regularly. There are several ways in which this can be accomplished:

  • A USB stick or memory card is a great way to back up your data on the go. This is because it’s portable and can store more than one computer at a time.
  • If you have an external hard drive, back it up on a different computer every month or two so that if something happens to your main machine, there will still be access to important files (such as financial records).
  • Don’t forget mobile devices! Your phone may not have enough storage space for large amounts of data but if you’re careful where photo albums are stored then they won’t take up too much room either! Just make sure they’re secure as well—it would be terrible if someone stole them while they were charging somewhere safe (like inside their own house)

Look for secure public Wi-Fi networks

Use a VPN. A VPN encrypts all data that passes through it, making it secure and private by default. This is especially important when using public Wi-Fi networks, which can be hacked or monitored by anyone who happens to be nearby.

Look for the padlock icon in your WiFi settings on your device, which indicates that you’re connected to a secure network (and thus, safe). If there’s no lock icon with an “e” in it—which means that no encryption exists between you and this network—you should consider switching back over to cellular data until you find one that does provide some level of protection against hackers or surveillance agencies (or both).

Use a virtual private network (VPN)

A virtual private network (VPN) is a private network that uses a public network to connect remote sites or users. It creates an encrypted connection over the internet and protects data from being intercepted by third parties. A VPN can be used to encrypt sensitive information, such as financial records, when it leaves your company’s servers and travels through a public Wi-Fi hotspot or cellular tower. This can help prevent hackers from stealing your data when it’s transmitted over open lines. However, not all VPNs are created equal in terms of security and privacy protection measures available for mobile platforms like iOS or Android devices

There are numerous VPN services available to consumers, many of which make bold claims about the security and privacy measures they provide. However, not all of them are created equal in terms of what they offer.

Choose strong passwords and update them frequently

  • Use a password manager to generate random passwords for all your accounts.
  • Change passwords regularly, but don’t forget to do so on a regular basis (weekly or more often). If you use the same password for multiple accounts, make sure those are changed too—especially if they’re associated with sensitive data like financial information or health records!
  • Don’t use public computers as an excuse not to change your account’s password: if someone gets access to one of your devices and finds out what it is, they can use it as their own personal toolbox or petri dish for stealing personal information from other sites. That’s why we recommend using 2-factor authentication whenever possible (eBay does this automatically).

Don’t click on links or pop-ups in emails, texts, or websites

Don’t click on links or pop-ups in emails, texts, or websites. If you’re not sure what a link is, email the sender and ask them to send it again.

Never enter your personal information into unsolicited emails—even if you know who sent them. This is especially important for business accounts, where sensitive data can be stored on servers with no security measures at all (if only there were a way to make all of our passwords more secure!).

If you do enter your personal information into an email, make sure that your email account is encrypted. Most email providers offer this by default but check to make sure. Otherwise, hackers could easily intercept any data you send over non-encrypted channels.

Keeping yourself and your data safe is a full-time job when you are on the go

Keeping yourself and your data safe is a full-time job when you are on the go. You cannot always rely on your phone or tablet to keep your data safe. The dangers of public Wi-Fi networks and hotel wireless networks are real, so it’s important to know how to protect yourself from them.

VPNs are one way to achieve this goal, but they have some limitations: they may not be able to access certain websites or apps if they aren’t allowed by the provider (like accessing Netflix), and they will slow down internet speeds once you start using them due to increased latency caused by encryption overhead.


We hope these tips help you stay safe online when you’re on the go. While it may be tempting to check your email or browse Facebook in public places, it is important to remember that you are putting yourself and those around you at risk if something goes wrong. We encourage everyone to take these steps when they travel so they can feel secure while enjoying their time away from home.
