Put All Your Sensitive Information in a Secure Email Message When You Travel


Traveling and going on vacation is one of the best joys we look forward to, not only does it benefit our minds to relieve stress and relax, but it also allows us to explore new things. The feelings we get of packing our bags, driving to the airport, and going through TSA to eventually find our gate is simply indescribable. Although traveling is by far one of the greatest pleasures we experience in our lives, misplacing or having your personal information stolen could be the difference between enjoying a nice tequila sunrise on the beach or walking around aimlessly in your hotel room not knowing who to call or what to do. That is why NeoCertified recommends that you protect your information by using a Secure Briefcase. This is not a traditional briefcase, but instead, a digital safe-hold that can store all your private information securely, so if you happen to lose your passport or credit card, you’d have a backup copy in your Secure Briefcase. A Secure Briefcase is essentially just a secure folder that has the ability to store secure messages in

1. Consolidate all your information into a secure folder that you can then put in your secure briefcase.

“Any piece of valuable or personal information that may be useful to you on your trip, or in case of emergency is necessary to put inside.”

The greatest perk of having a secure briefcase with NeoCertified is that you can scan all your personal documents and information so that you have copies of them, should you misplace them during your travels. Any piece of valuable or personal information that may be useful to you on your trip, or in case of emergency is necessary to put inside. So, regardless if your credit card, passport, or Social Security card gets stolen or misplaced you will have an extra copy that you can then use to assist the associated facility with to resolve the problem. If you have lost your passport, locating a local passport acceptance facility such as a post office, some public libraries, a clerk of court office, or a regional passport agency that can process expedited passport applications will help you to get a replacement. If you are a U.S. citizen traveling abroad and have lost your passport you will have to contact the U.S. Embassy for information on how to apply for a new one. Shipping your passport is not an available option when applying from outside of the U.S., you will have to apply for it in person at a U.S. embassy.

2. How to log in to your secure portal.

 If you are using NeoCertified as a means of digital protection, logging into your account is as simple as 1,2,3. After purchasing your secure email account go to your associated secure portal, if you’re not sure where that is, contact our customer support team so they can direct you to the appropriate portal based on your industry. After logging in you’ll then want to create a new folder, which will allow you to separate your received emails and documents from the pieces of personally identifiable information that will be uploaded before your trip.  After doing so, you can then send yourself a secure email message with all of your important documents and sensitive information attached for your travels, this is what we call your Secure Briefcase. Uploading your documents or images on your computer via a PDF will be the best form of file type to choose from. PDFs are typically universally accepted across both computers and mobile devices.

3. Keep Your Briefcase Secure

Once you have securely stored your documents inside of your secure briefcase, you’ll be able to access them from any internet-connected device. So, you don’t even need to bring a computer along with you, any mobile device with internet access will be able to access your documents from anywhere in the world. Resetting your secure portal password is recommended before traveling so that you are protected from an online breach, should one occur in the city, state, or country you are visiting.
