Don’t Let the Summer Heat Ruin Your Technology

Don’t Let the Summer Heat Ruin Your Technology

Summer is a time for fun and relaxation, not tech-related stress. To ensure your devices are safe from cybersecurity threats and weather-related issues, we’ve compiled some essential tips.

Protecting Your Devices While Traveling

Your summer adventures are too valuable to risk. Here’s how to protect your technology from cyberthreats:

Update Before You Go

Ensure all your software is up-to-date before you head out. Updates fix vulnerabilities that hackers could exploit and help you avoid using unsecured hotel Wi-Fi or wasting mobile data on updates.

Avoid Public Wi-Fi

Assume public networks are compromised. If you must use them, stick to secure websites (look for https in the URL), use a virtual private network (VPN), and never share sensitive information.

Backup Your Data

Always back up your data before traveling. Sync your mobile data with another device to safeguard against loss, theft, or damage.

Utilize Tracking Features

Modern devices often have built-in tracking features. Enable these to locate your device if it is lost or stolen.

Keeping Your Devices Cool

Hot weather can be tough on technology. Follow these tips to keep your devices cool:

Ensure Proper Ventilation

Give your devices a few inches of breathing room and clear vents to help internal cooling systems work efficiently.

Avoid Direct Sunlight

Keep devices out of direct sunlight and, if possible, in a cool environment with a fan or air conditioning. Lower levels of your home are often cooler.

Keep Devices Clean

Dust and debris can clog fans and vents, reducing cooling efficiency. To maintain proper airflow, regularly clean your devices with compressed air.

Power Down if Overheating

If a device overheats, turn it off and disconnect the power. Wait for it to cool before turning it back on. Use the tips above to prevent future overheating.
