If you’re gearing up to go on a big vacation this summer, you’re probably checking off the usual things from your list: passport, travelers checks, sunscreen, plenty of clothes, and a great itinerary full of exciting things to see and do. Securing your mobile technology while you’re on the road is just as important. Here’s how RecordVault can help make sure that your trip doesn’t take an unexpected turn for the worse.
Secure Medical Information
Getting involved in a bad accident while you travel can be a lot worse than experiencing an emergency situation while at home. You may be far away from doctors who know important health information about you, including your blood type or allergies. You can keep important facts about your medical history locked away on your phone using RecordVault. The way information is encrypted on our app lets emergency responders access it during a crisis, while leaving hackers out in the cold. Consider storing information for other family members, too, especially seniors and children.
Store Emergency Contact Information
It’s smart to create a list of important numbers and e-mails of people you can contact during an emergency, but leaving this information unlocked on your phone could create more problems than it solves. Make sure that your emergency contacts are behind closed doors so that only you can access them when and if you need them.
Keep Routing Numbers Handy
If you lose cash or have your wallet stolen during a trip, you may need to wire money to yourself. If you’re not able to get online, but have use of your mobile, calling your bank may be the only way to make sure that you’re not stranded in a foreign land without funds to get around. You can create a document with important routing numbers to wire money to yourself. Locking it away in RecordVault lets you access it easily and safely.
Other Travel Information
Did your friend leave you detailed instructions on how to get into their cabin? Maybe they’ve given you written directions on where to find a key and how to let yourself in once you arrive. Working out these details through e-mail or messaging could be dangerous on an open wireless network, where prying eyes may be intruding on a conversation you assume to be private. Take the instructions down orally and then seal them away with your RecordVault account.
Wherever you may be headed this summer, RecordVault can be a trusty travel companion. Plan ahead, keep private information safe and you can focus on enjoying some well-deserved rest and relaxation!
