Mobile phone theft

These days almost everyone has a mobile phone or a smartphone. As these devices often have considerable value, they have become a target for thieves. 

How can you protect yourself against smartphone theft?

  • Be aware and always keep your phone within your sight.
  • Carry your smartphone in an inside pocket (if possible, one that fastens).
  • In your car, never leave your phone in a place where it can be seen from outside.
  • Secure your devices with a password.
  • Backup your phone regularly so that you can restore your data if your device is stolen.
  • Install a location tracking app on your smartphone so that you can locate it if it is stolen.
  • Make a note of your phone's IMEI number (you can find it by typing *#06# into the phone keypad).
