Although it is not frequently raining, the whole of Odisha these days is receiving rainfall in intervals. Yes, the most awaited monsoon is here. Yet, along with the monsoon enjoyment, the next thing for you is to protect your smartphone.
While rain can be enjoyed sometimes, the big problem is if your phone gets drenched it will abruptly stop working. And once, the phone, your favourite companion, stops working, you will get disconnected from everybody.
Not only that you will miss enjoying your WhatsApp, Facebook, Messenger, and every exciting service that this gadget provides you 24*7. And thus, it is very very important that you should take all majors to protect your smartphone from rainwater. But how? Don’t lose heart. Here are some simple and easy tips to make the most of the rain while protecting your phone from water damage at the same time.
Wrap your phone with a transparent plastic
The simplest but most necessary step to protect your phone is to wrap it with plastic. Wrap it properly and close the ends using tape. This will prevent water from getting into your phone during a downpour.
In other words, get a raincoat for your phone. Come monsoon and we arm ourselves with colourful and designer raincoats to avoid getting drenched. Even many hold an umbrella to get protected from the rain. In fact, we try our best to not let the rain dampen our spirits when traveling to the college or the office. So, why not we do the same to protect the smartphone? After all, it is our best companion.
It is better to keep your hands free
The slightest drop of water inside your phone can mean lasting damage. Thus, it’s better to keep it in your pocket or bag when going out in the rain. And the easiest way to go hands-free is by using a Bluetooth earphone.
These days many stylish hands-free units are available in the market. So, by using it, not only you are protecting your phone, you are also becoming stylish. Choose the one that matches your style status perfectly.

Tempered glass is another option
The other way to protect your smartphone from rainwater is to use tempered glass. You can visit a store that provides the service of wrapping the phone with tempered glass. The process is: the glass is first heated and then cooled using chemical and thermal technology. This makes it extremely durable compared to other screen protectors.
The tempered glass not only allows your phone to become resistant to scratches, fingerprints, and shock, it also makes your phone waterproof. However, here the best thing we should keep in mind is not to go for a cheap one. The reason is a cheap mobile screen protector may allow water to seep in around the edges.
Maintain a backup
By the aforementioned options, you can protect your phone from rainwater. However, you should go for precautions. More clearly, it is also good to maintain a backup of all your precious phone data, such as contacts, photos, videos, etc. If your contacts and photos and videos are saved to Google then, even if your phone gets damaged, you can retrieve all these valuable things.
