You invest in your tech products, but how well do you protect them? A powerful laptop or next-generation tablet will serve you until it doesn't. Do you know what to do when your gadgets inevitably freeze, get glitchy or completely break down? For inspiration, let's turn to the professionals — people who work with all sorts of tech on a daily basis.

Consider the ways Yahoo Plus Protect Home brand ambassador and tech reporter Jessica Naziri protects her home technology investments. "My secret weapon is Yahoo Plus Protect Home," she said in a recent online post. The tech reporter couldn't resist adding a sassy little twist to her recommendation. "Check out Yahoo Plus Protect Home for yourself [and] stop asking me about all your tech woes, sorry [I'm] not your personal IT."

What does Yahoo Plus Protect Home cover?

A home tech protection plan like Yahoo Plus Protect Home offers services to help out if something goes wrong with your equipment. Yahoo Plus Protect Home is designed to make sure consumers won't have to worry about what happens to their gadgets. It helps pay for repairs, replacements or even new devices.

Yahoo Plus Protect Home provides top-notch technical support and protection for the tech we love, like flat-screen TVs, laptops, gaming consoles, and more. Unlike protection plans you buy in stores, that only cover the product purchased during specific transactions, Yahoo Plus Protect Home covers almost all of the devices in the home, regardless of when or where they were bought.
