2. Beware of fake apps and cheat tools apps
3. Download weather apps (to get natural disaster warnings)
4. Be careful of getting a heat stroke
5. Carry an external battery pack for your phone
6. Prepare for alternative methods of contacting people (phone cards)
7. Avoid entering dangerous places
8. Beware of strangers who say they want to meet you
9. Avoid walking while using your smartphone
