Switch Off Your Phone Before Charging it at a Public Placed Charging Booth- Please spread the word.

If the battery of your  mobile phone  runs out while you are at a public place and you need to make an important call, what would you do?



Normally, we don’t carry the mobile charger so the only way to charge the phone at a public place like a mall, hotel or an airport is to use the public charging ports installed there. So you’ll simply charge your phone using this public charging port, right?

Did you know, all your private data like phone numbers, images and text messages are at a risk of being stolen. Even a virus may be uploaded to your phone!

A public charging booth can have a power cord or a USB charger to let you charge the battery of your mobile phone. If you use the USB charger then there is a security risk that your data may be stolen and your phone may be infected by a malware.

To keep your phone safe from this secure while charging at a public place, try to  use a power cord instead of a USB charger and always switch off your mobile phone completely  before you plug it into the charging port.


Please share the post, if you think it is important for people to know it.
