Younited Shares Top Ways to Make Summer Adventures Sizzle…with All Your Devices
A new F-Secure poll shows that most respondents want to have access to all their digital content while on vacation.
Helsinki, Finland – June 10, 2014: In a recent F-Secure poll,* 94% of respondents said they take digital photos while traveling. And while smartphones and tablets are great for snapping vacation photos and taking videos, there are other ways they can help you make summer adventures really sizzle – from the initial planning to reliving the memories afterward.
86% of respondents, for example, said they would like to be able to access all their digital music, videos, documents and other content from their devices while on vacation. And to help plan a great getaway to start with, a group collaboration service accessible from any device is a great way to make sure everyone gets to participate in planning destinations and activities.
What about storing memories once they’re captured in photos and videos? 45% said their photos are backed up or synced to a cloud service, and 55% said they keep them on their camera or smartphone and transfer or upload them to other storage later. 33% of poll respondents have lost photos and videos that were stored on their smartphone or tablet without a backup. As for sharing vacation photos with friends, only 37% said they feel comfortable sharing them on Facebook.
With younited by F-Secure, people can easily plan, safely store and share their summer adventures – in one safe place, that works with all their devices. Here’s how younited can make summertime really rock:
Plan adventures collaboratively. With younited’s new Group Spaces feature, friends and family can collaborate together on their trip or event plans. Users can collect and edit files together in one safe place. Group spaces only uses quota on the host’s account, no one else’s.
Access content while you’re away. When you store your digital stuff in younited, you can always get to it even when you’re away. Stuck in a hotel with nothing to do? Going for a jog and want to take your favorite music? Use younited to access your stuff like you were at home.
Keep vacation photos safe no matter what happens. Things happen, especially on vacation. So even if your phone gets lost or stolen, make sure your memories are safe by backing them up to younited. Tip: Users can save on roaming charges by backing photos up via the hotel wifi at night. Because younited is encrypted in transit, the transfer will be safe even if the wifi is unsecured.
Share photos with loved ones back home, securely. Safely share your experiences with just the people you want to. This is especially great for those nervous about sharing in Facebook and other social networks.
