Contrary to popular belief,
hiding your money, jewelry or other valuable items in unusual places will
not keep the ‘bad guys’ from finding them – but it may make it a bit more
You can be quite
certain if a thief were to break into your home, they will tear apart any
and everything to find your valuable items. However, there is a good
chance they won’t want to spend a whole lot of time having to ransack the
longer it takes them to find something, the bigger the chance they will
get caught. This means you should not hide your money or other valuables
in areas that are easy to find and obvious.
5 of the worst places
to stash your valuables include:
1. The toilet tank: The only thing that
should go here are the deodorizers that turn the water blue. Any thief
will make this a go-to spot to find valuable items.
hamper: Smelly, dirty clothes are not an effective
deterrent for a criminal with a mission.
Anything that has
a lock: If it locks, it’s
The freezer: While burglars may not spend too much time digging through
the freezer, there is a good chance they will give it a second look if
anything appears out of place.
Your child’s room: The kid’s bedroom are a definite hot spot for burglars so
be sure to keep valuables out.
The Right Solution
If you have cash,
jewelry or other valuable items, you don’t want it to be easily found if
your home is broken into. You need to think of some creative spots to
stash these items. However, keep in mind, if you want a surefire way to
prevent your home being targeted, have a home security system installed.
Tips to Protect Your
Tablet During the Holidays
The popularity of the
tablet has increased significantly and virtually everyone has or uses one
on a regular basis.
However, those who don’t
have them, want them, which puts the tablets at high risk of being
During the holidays,
when many people are distracted or busy, it is a prime time to steal
tablets, but with a few tips this can be prevented.
Don’t Ever Leave the Tablet
Besides in your own
home, there is no safe location to leave your tablet, especially during
the busy holiday season. You should not leave the tablet in your work
cubicle, in your vehicle, or at the dinner table in a restaurant. This is
too much of a temptation for some, and your tablet can go missing
quickly. Keep it with you and hidden at all times.
While there is no
physical protection offered by a password, and it won’t stop someone from
resetting the entire device, it can help ensure your data is not stolen.
If you lose your tablet, rather than having it stolen, it may also be a
good idea to have your contact information on the front, just in case an
honest person finds it. There are some tablets that also offer the option
for remote wiping, which may be a good idea.
Use a Quality Locking
Take some time to do
your research and install software or programs to lock the tablet if
someone continually enters the wrong password into the device. This will help
to protect your tablet from being used by someone who steals it.
Apps That Will Locate
There are several good
apps that you can download to locate your tablet once it is stolen. Just
Google which one is best rated for your specific tablet.
Taking the time to
safeguard your tablet will help ensure that you don’t suffer a loss this
