OneDrive. These services also make it really easy to store all your photos in the cloud automatically. That said, remember that storage is limited – and the backup process will stop when you’ve run out of space. Apple offers its own solution in the form of iCloud. The backup settings can be configured on any device via the Photos app.
If you’ve already lost your smartphone, you should definitely think about trying to locate it and, if possible, wiping it remotely.
Google offers a simple, but very comprehensive solution for any Android device which lets you do precisely that. You can use it to locate your smartphone, make it ring, try calling it, or perform a factory data reset. This is definitely worthwhile doing if you don’t know who’s now got hold of your phone.
Apple offers a similar service, but you need to enable it. The first step is to download the Find My iPhone app. There are instructions in the app’s description on how to configure it. In an emergency, you can then use it – just like Google’s solution – to access your smartphone, locate it, and wipe it from any computer.
Alternatively, you can use other services such as our Avira Connect solution. The advantage with this is that you can manage all your devices in one place.
