Your world is on your mobile devices and PC: Your family photos, home videos, documents and emails. Unfortunately, you can lose it in an instance. For those folks who haven’t backed up their files, that means disaster. Today is World BackUp Day. Be prepared. Backup your files on March 31st.
Did you know?
- 113 cellphones are lost or stolen every minute of every day
- More men (60%) than women (47%) frequently back up their data
- Women are more at risk than men if their smartphone is stolen or lost, because they do not protect their personal data and information as well as men do.
Back up your Android phone or tablet
Malware is a growing threat to the Android platform, but because of the small size of our devices, loss and theft is still the bigger threat. Men are more careful about the safety and security of their cellphones than women. We learned that curious fact from an avast! survey conducted last summer, Lost or Stolen Smartphone: The Consequences are Bigger for Women Than for Men.
avast! Mobile BackUp is available for Android phones and tablets and comes in two different versions.
- 1. The standalone free version provides you with basic backup options: Contacts, text messages, pictures, and call logs.
- 2. If you would like to backup music, video, and apps, then you need to buy the Premium version. This can be done later, from within the free version.
