With the temperatures warming (hopefully), thoughts turn to spring cleaning. Closets, attics and basements aren’t the only things that need a little tidying up, however. It’s a good time to take out your smartphone and get it organized as well.
Here are some easy tips to spring cleaning your smartphone:
- Update Your Passwords
From your phone lock password to those for any sites or apps that you use frequently, updating your password from time to time is always a good – and safe – idea.
- Clean Up Your Inbox
it’s easy to let your emails pile up after you’ve read them. Don’t wait until every spring to clean up your inbox. Once a month, or once a quarter, cruise through your inbox and delete unneeded emails and organize the ones you still need into inbox folders. Don’t forget to periodically clean out your sent folder and give yourself extra storage space.
- Do an App-endectomy
We know it’s hard to resist all of those free apps or stop downloading those must-have apps all of your friends keep talking about. But if you haven’t used an app in a while, it’s probably time to delete it from your phone. Take a few minutes every month or two and delete the apps that have outlived their purpose.
- Have a Backup Plan
Whether you backup your phone to a computer or a cloud, make sure you make a habit of it. It might seem like an extra, unnecessary task – but you’ll definitely be sorry if you don’t!
