It will outline the important benefits of next-generation mobile protection for consumers and for carriers, and will highlight how these services can ensure the seamless continuation of mobile subscribers' digital lives in the event of various disruption scenarios, including but not limited to, device damage or theft, technical trouble, data loss or security/privacy threats.



Background of Mobile Protection



Traditional handset protection services, such as mobile phone insurance or handset protection, have been available for a long time. Mobile operators (carriers) started offering handset protection as a value-added service in the early 1990s. Over time, as wireless handsets became mainstream, consumer adoption of handset protection increased rapidly. With increased competition in the early 2000s, carriers realized the customer retention capabilities of handset protection and began marketing these services aggressively to their customer base. More recently, the proliferation of higher-priced smartphones, often prime targets for malfeasance such as theft or hacking, has led to a surge in the awareness and popularity of handset protection services.
