How to Avoid Malware

Here at Phone Medics Plus, we’re committed to helping you get your computer back in top form after a virus or malware infection, but we also know how much you rely on your computer, and how inconvenient it can be to go without it for a day or two while it’s being repaired. With that in mind, we wanted to give you some tips on the best way to keep your computer safe and healthy and free of malware.

Safe Browsing Habits Your first and most important line of defense when it comes to keeping your computer safe from malware is to establish safe browsing habits. If we think of malware as germs, then this is like avoiding contaminated surfaces. You don’t eat food off the floor, you don’t let your baby lick the grocery cart handle, and you practice safe browsing habits when you’re on the internet. The first step to safe browsing is simply to avoid questionable websites. These sorts of sites take many forms – some offer you too-good-to-be-true deals on vacations or impossible deals on products …

New Feature: Check Your Repair Status Online!

At Phone Medics Plus, we strive to be as open and transparent as possible when handling your repair. When you leave your phone, tablet, or computer with us, we want you to know that it's in good hands.

Phone Medics Plus Partners with Brevard Humane Society

In our last post, we talked about Phone Medics Plus’s recycling program for used cell phones and other personal electronics. We also mentioned that as part of that program, all proceeds from our sale of recyclable material will be donated to the Brevard Humane Society. We that in mind, we wanted to shine a spotlight on the Brevard Humane Society, and tell you a little bit more about who they are and what they do.


The Brevard Humane Society is the oldest animal welfare organization in Brevard County. It was founded in 1952 to promote humane treatment of animals and to care for the homeless animals of Brevard County. A “no kill for space” shelter, Brevard Humane Society does not euthanize animals just to free up cage space. Instead, they seek to create a “no kill community” by offering programs that promote care for animals, the adoption of homeless animals, and raising community awareness on the importance of spaying and neutering pets.

To help achieve that goal, the Brevard Humane Soc…

Phone Medics Plus Accepts Cell Phones for Recycling

At Phone Medics Plus we are committed to doing our part to care for our environment and help our community. That’s why we accept your used personal electronics for recycling.


As technology becomes a bigger part of our lives, it unfortunately also becomes a bigger portion of our garbage. Electronic waste, or “e-waste,” is the fastest growing form of waste in the nation. Millions of tons of e-waste go into landfills every year. Cell phones are a major component of this waste. The average cell phone is used for 18 months or less, and an estimated 140 million cell phones are thrown away every year. Not only does this waste take up an enormous amount of space in our landfills, it also represents a significant environmental threat. Many of the materials and components that are in your cell phone can be harmful to the environment. Phone in landfills can leak chemicals like cadmium, lithium, nickel, beryllium, and even arsenic into our soil and groundwater, where they present a hazard to plan…
