By Stella Inger. CREATED Dec 27, 2013

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - You're probably excited about that new gadget you got for Christmas.  It's also a good idea to keep your new device safe.

Here are some helpful tips:

Turn on the screen lock setting and set a passcode, it's the easiest way to keep you information safe

  • You should then download or activate any lost-device features
  • Apple has find "my iPhone" and Android devices use the "android device manager"
  • Buy a case, one that offers good protection
  • Broken and scratched devices can cost hundreds of dollars to fix
  • Apple and Android devices allow you to track data usage under the settings

Make sure you tune in and watch Guy Atchley and me tonight at 5, 6 and 10 p.m.
