Safeguard your mobile phone

 

Having your phone stolen is a hassle. It's not just the handset you lose; it's the numbers, messages and photos too. Thieves are opportunists, so don't make yourself an easy target. Knowing how to protect your mobile and keep it safe will save you a lot of inconvenience and stress.

  • If you're not making a call, make sure that your phone is hidden away
  • Keep it in one of your front pockets or inside a bag
  • Don't attach it to your belt or around your neck
  • If you're making a call on your mobile in a public area, make sure you always keep an eye on what's going on around you
  • Try to avoid using your mobile phone in public at night. If you do have to use your phone, try to find an area that's well-lit
  • Avoid getting out your phone at train stations and bus stops as these are areas that thieves target
