Have you ever lost your phone or had it stolen? What was on your phone that you'll never get back? Apps, sure, but those are backed up in your account usually. What about your photos? You'll never see them again. Don't let that happen.

This course will show you how simple it is to get your phone setup with the best protection on the planet for free.

Here's what you get from this course:

  • How to use Amazon and Microsoft's stable infrastructure to keep your media safe
  • How to use online cloud sync services
  • Setup sync on Windows, Mac, and Linux computers
  • Full step by step instructions for Dropbox and OneDrive

  • How to free up space on your iPhone so it is usable again.

Americans lose their phone about one a year, or get it stolen. This does not include getting broken or upgraded. Phones are lost or stolen every hour in the US as well. It is a problem in many countries all over the world.

I have many friends and family members who have lost their phones or broken them, so I wanted to create a simple quick course to help at least save the photos and videos that you can never get back.

Another big issue I've seen with iPhones especially is that the phone gets full and makes you have to delete photos to continue using it. This course shows you how to never have that issue again.

Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone who has had their phone lost, broken, stolen or upgraded and lost photos because of it
  • Anyone who takes photos and videos on their smartphone
  • If you don't have a smartphone, you won't get a lot out of this course

According to some reports, around 167,720 are stolen or lost every day in the US. Americans lose their phone about once a year on average. This is a big issue, especially when a lot of us don't even know how to get our photos off our phones.

Another big problem is storing so many photos that you run out of space and can't use the phone for much picture and video taking after that. iPhones are especially notorious for this, and is a big issue for a lot of us. How do you get all those photos off and onto somewhere securely and keep them all but still get them all off your phone so you can reclaim that space?

Well, this course aims to answer both of these issues for you. I hope it helps you solve these technology issues for you. I created this course with you in mind. As always let me know if I can explain something better or help you in any way in this course.

I've been playing with technology since I was a kid. At 13 I was building websites by hand in HTML and Frontpage 98 (which is how I learned what not to do). Since then I've been a computer addict and web programmer. I was programming Alpha3 databases on an old green monochrome IBM years before, but at the time I didn't know THAT was programming.

I've always been an avid reader and insatiable learner, I started rearranging bits and bytes to make the computer behave the way I wanted as a kid and have always had a knack for explaining complex things in simple language. I like to help anyone I can in my area of expertise.

I've been developing for the web professionally for 20+ years and I am currently a Sr. Software Engineer for a major telecom company. I specialize in front end web development with a current focus on Angular, Node, JavaScript, jQuery, CSS, SASS, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, WordPress, Drupal. I have experience in the LAMP stack, Node stack, Ruby on Rails stack, C# ASP DOTNET and many others.

If you ever need help, I personally answer all discussions as soon as possible and all comments on my YouTube channel as well. I am here to help with your technology learning so anytime I can assist you, please contact me. Thanks!
