The need to adopt safety measures to ensure the protection of valuable items and information is becoming increasingly necessary in today’s world. Thankfully, the emergence of technology has brought about several means of guaranteeing personal safety and safety of our valuables.
Due to the rise and adoption of technology, personal security has never been more seamless. It’s a great feeling knowing that no matter what it is and where it may be, your precious item or items – data, identity, personal funds, gadgets, and even yourself as an individual – are kept safe and sound.
Just to show you how big a deal this is, here are the top tier technology-derived methods of ensuring safety:
Top 5 Technological Safety Measures
- Data Encryption
There has been a steady rise in the number of hackers and cyber thieves out there waiting to pry and steal your precious information. The key to preventing this is the marriage of such data into a set of hard drives.
The use of hardware and software-based data encryption not only provides safe storage for your most vital information but also ensures only authorized personnel gain access to such data.
- Gadget Tracing
The introduction of application software that allows for convenient tracking of your missing devices is a big leap towards the ultimate protection of personal items.
This allows you to store every bit of valuable information on a particular device – phone, laptop, tablet – without the fear of having this taken away from you because now you can easily track your device anywhere in the event of theft.
With this, you can lock your hard drive through your phone or through the internet in case your computer gets stolen.
- The Use of Fingerprints and Facial Recognition
The more traditional method of locking your devices always included the use of a typed password or pin but as time progressed, so did the method used to lock your personal devices and company computers.
Now, we have the latest phones embedded with fingerprint sensors and facial recognition features that are pretty easy to set up and implement. Hackers can guess your password but let’s see them try to replicate your fingerprint!
- Remote Security
Now to the protection of your household, technology has made it possible to take the security of our homes into our hands. Gone are the days when the security of our doors was limited to a lock-key system.
With the advancement of technology, we can ensure and track the safety of our doors, gates, windows and so on with the aid of our mobile phones. Yes, you can now remotely lock your entire household just by pressing your mobile phone!
- Alarms for Unauthorized Entry
Technology did not just provide us with the means of preventing system breaches but also ensured we have ways of being notified in the unfortunate event our systems get breached. So, if an intruder does manage to invade your household or computers, you can get notified immediately.
This allows you to report to the relevant authorities as well as block further intrusion. Is there anything you can’t do with technology?
Technology is an ever-advancing part of our generation. With its implementation, we have crossed certain boundaries and obstacles towards ensuring foolproof safety to ourselves and personal items. In order to keep track of these innovations, Scoop Nova provides all the details on the tech ecosystem.
