How to protect your phone/ tablet from kids
Yes, kids are bundles of joy and can be bundles of trouble at the same time. Sweet beings or little monsters? Isn’t that what comes to mind when any kid toys with your favorite thing or breaks them?
Whether it be your kids, the neighbors’ or even nephews and nieces, they sure can be a pain sometimes. And when they play around with your expensive phones/tablets, it is more like playing with your emotions.
But the thing is, if you own a phone or a tablet, and have a kid around; it is kind of evident that you need to protect them from each other. Especially if you live here in India, a country full of kids and unlimited calamities waiting for your tablet or phone.
So how do you do it? Well, here’s how.
Firstly, set the limits in your home. Do not ever keep your phone/ tablet lying around. Even in case you do, always make sure that every profile you use, your email I.D. signed out. Trust me, you do not need te embarrassment of the century on your Facebook profile. Just think it out; it is as necessary to protect your phone/tablet as you would protect your PC. A password might just be the best bet.
The next best thing would be getting a real, solid and strong cover for your phone/tablet. The other thing we would advise you is keep your stuff in the locker when you aren’t using it.
One other thing we would say is take care of the wires. Kids are crazy. They can trip over wires they can actually physically hurt themselves with the USB/Charger wires from your phone tablet. Bes safe, put away a wire as soon you are done with it.
Also, keep your phone/tablet away from the dinner table. See, kids can find it fun, but spilling water or food over your phone/tablet, might just be the end of it.
In case, your kid is really gung-ho over your phone/tablet, we would suggest you to get him/her a toy one as they aren’t really going to stop trying to reach your stuff unless they get it and one of their own is the best distraction out there.
This is all we have to say on the matter. But feel free to contribute any suggestions if you want to. Thanks to Wired for the inspiration for this article.
