It’s the rainy season and you can't predict when it will rain. You always try to keep yourself dry by carrying an umbrella around. Just staying dry is not enough. You also have to keep your smartphone dry. If you do not take care of your phone during the rainy season, it might get spoilt at any moment. If you have a waterproof smartphone, you don't have to worry. If you don’t have one, you can try these tricks to safeguard the smartphone from rains.

You can also keep Silica Gel in the zip covers. Silica Gel absorbs moisture and helps keep things dry. You can find Silica Gel in the new shoe box or bag with a ''Do not eat" warning printed at the side.

2. Turn off immediately

In case you don't have anything to protect your smartphone from rains, switch if off immediately and take out the battery. It is risky to use the wet phone and it can stop working at any time. If your phone gets wet after it has been switched off, you can at least use the phone once it is switched on.
