Safely Using Smartphones and Tablet Computers

Keep your phone's data safe with DDI Utilities.

These days everyone seems to have an iPhone, even children who might be a little too young. Tablets and smartphones are becoming some of the most-used devices, quickly replacing desktop computers and laptops. Maybe that’s due to the current obsession everyone has with touch screens. Or maybe it’s because these devices are more portable. Because they’re used so much on the go, it’s very important to keep your information backed up. An app like DDI Utilities can help you recover your contacts, pictures, and more if your phone breaks.

What many people aren’t aware of, is the potential dangers of using these devices, both for adults and children. People don’t seem to know – or don’t want to know – the ways that modern technology can harm them. If someone is wondering what they can do to keep their body and mind safe when using these new electronics, they have come to the right place.

Keep Good Posture

There are a lot of people who like to recline in a chair or lay back on the couch when they are using their electronic devices. One of the best things that they can do is learn to have good posture when they are working, or using their electronic devices. It’s hard for someone not to use their cell phone when it contains so much important data, but it can always be backed up with DDI Utilities. This way, you do not have to constantly make sure everything is up to date and saved.  This gives you more time to relax and enjoy time with your family.  I also promote getting up from your device and walking around; this is good both for your mind and your body.

Typing on Tablet Keyboards

Tablets need to be handled safely and carefully.
Tablets are very handy devices, but they should be used with care.

Lots of people think tablets are just as good as laptops when they have a keyboard. The keys on a tablet keyboard, however, are much thinner and don’t have as much give to them as regular keyboards do. That makes it easy to bang away at these keys, which don’t provide much of a cushion for one’s fingers. There have been a lot of reports of people who have begun to get pain in the joints, in their wrists, fingers, and thumbs, because they’ve been typing too aggressively.

Using Phones at Night

I used to be a big culprit of using my phone at night.  However, now I know, that using your phone at night has been found to give people problems. There have been a lot of people who have grown accustomed to staying on their phone into the wee hours of the night. Those of you who tend to do this should at least turn on the Night Mode of your phone, if it has one. If not, it’s better to stay off the phone at night, as the light from the phone tricks your brain into thinking that it’s not time to go to sleep.

iPhone 6 Plus, 7 Plus, and Other Big Smartphones

Another thing that consumers have reported problems with is using a new, bigger smartphone. Upgrading to a “Plus” model of the recent iPhone editions has caused some problems. Many people have issues transferring data from an old phone to the new phone. You don’t want to lose all of your data, but with the help of DDI Utilities, you don’t have to worry.
