66 Percent of People Say They’d Grab Their Phone or Computer First In Case Of A Hazard

The question of what you’d grab in the event of a fire breaking out in your home is quite a common query that many people have likely been asked at some point. However, the answers to this question might be dramatically different in this modern day and age. It turns out, two out of three people would go straight for their smartphone or computer if a fire were to occur in their home!

A survey conducted by Secure Data Recovery asked a group of people this very question. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that 38% of survey respondents said that they would go for their phone, whereas 28% said that their laptop would be the most important thing for them to take along.

18% said that they would try to take a sentimental object, 6% would go for family photos, 3% selected other forms of electronics and just 2% said jewelry which makes sense. Smartphones and laptops were bound to be at the top of the list because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up providing many different functions and features all of which can generally be rather necessary.

It’s not just physical belongings that people would hate to lose either. Personal data that gets accumulated on various platforms can also be quite emotionally important with all things having been considered and taken into account. 77% of survey respondents said that they would be sad to lose personal data from their Facebook, since this data can be a useful way for people to track their personal histories over the years.

Instagram was selected by just 45% of respondents, but in a surprising twist Spotify was selected by 42%. This seems to suggest that people place a lot of stock in the kind of music that they listen to, and they would want their preferences to stay secure. Another surprising statistic was that only 15% of people said that they would be sad about losing TikTok data.
