Why should I back up my mobile device?
Just like backing up your desktop computer or laptop, it is also crucial to back up your mobile device. Both Apple and Android have their own methods of backing up data that are easy and free, so everyone should be able to save their data in case of an attack. Backups are useful for saving photos, videos, and personal contacts on your phone. In the case that your device is stolen, the hard drive fails, or is infected with ransomware, your data will not be affected as long as you properly back up your mobile device.
