From misplaced wallets to TSA body scans, today’s travelers are concerned about their privacy. Privacy threats both high-tech and low-tech can threaten your peace of mind on vacation, but lucky for you, we have a few privacy trips for traveling.
Keep your documents safe
Here’s a privacy worry that’s been around a long time. You’re having a great time, only to realize when you arrive back at your hotel that your wallet’s been stolen, or you’ve left your purse in a cab—along with your driver’s license, credit cards and other important info. In the past, we might have advised making copies, but today, it’s easy to take pictures of your documents and cards and store them in the Keepsafe Photo Vault app.
Password-protect your phone and laptop
Make sure to password-protect your devices with a password that’s not easy, to guess, and encrypt the devices as well. This will prevent thieves from stealing credit card numbers, bank routing numbers and other personal information from your apps.
Get smart at security
If you’re uncomfortable going through the body scanner at the airport, you can opt-out and request an old-fashioned pat-down. Better yet, sign up for TSA’s PreCheck, which will enable you to go through a regular metal detector at the airport. Bonus? Shorter security lines!
