Every now and then we get asked by friends or customers how SilentPocket can benefit them in their lives. The short answer is that a SilentPocket product lets you take back control over when your data can be accessed. You determine when and where your GPS signal can be tracked or when your RFID chip is exposed and scannable. The goal of today’s blog is to take a lawyer and look at the ways that they might use SilentPocket. If you want to know how SilentPocket fits into your life, feel free to reach out to us on twitter, facebook, email, or in the comments below.
Everything a lawyer does is private and confidential. If it wasn’t, you probably wouldn’t be comfortable discussing your finances, future plans, or current problems with them. So protecting that privacy is a big priority for the lawyer. When it comes to protecting physical copies of documents and legal forms, it’s pretty straight forward. Locked file cabinets and shredding discarded documents will cover you pretty well. However, legal documents don’t just come on paper anymore. Copies of documents can be made into Word Documents, PDFs, or any other file type. By being digital you can easily share these documents between yourself and your client. This means that revisions can be emailed back and forth instead of constantly scheduling meetings in person or over the phone. However, a digital copy is much easier to steal, and unlike a piece of paper, you don’t know when it’s been stolen. An email to or from your phone can be snagged by hackers in a variety of ways. The most popular is through free unprotected wireless networks in public places like coffee shops or airports. Any email sent to or from your phone while connected to these networks can be copied. You won’t even know it’s happened because the recipient still gets the email. Many phones automatically search for open wireless networks to connect to, and with this connection a hacker can gain access to your phones emails and contacts. The last thing you want as a lawyer is someone contacting your clients and using information they found in your emails to trick and scam your clients into sending money, or revealing personal details they can sell to 3rd parties. By using a SilentPocket® cell phone case your device becomes unhackable. Nobody can connect to your device while it’s in the case and you can relax knowing that your files are on hand and secure.
Beyond offering security for your data, SilentPocket® has another added benefit. When sitting down and meeting with your clients you want to convey the utmost professionalism. Having your phone ring or notify you of a new email is rude and shows your client you aren’t 100% focused on them. So when you’ve got a meeting, you simply put your phone inside a SilentPocket® case and you’re done. While inside no phone calls, texts, or emails will reach your phone. This ensures that all your attention is on the client in front of you.
So in these day to day activities for a lawyer SilentPocket offers a few important uses. It helps to protect any confidential data on mobile devices from being accessed by unknown 3rd parties. Additionally it removes the distraction from your phone in face to face situations, ensuring that you are focused on your clients.
