Be aware of your surroundings at all times and keep your personal property secure. Don't text while
you're walking you won't notice potential thieves approaching.
Use the security features on your phone.
Try going hands free or stand away from the roadside close to a wall so no one can come up
behind you.
Your phone comes with a range of security features, such as keypad locks and remote data wiping.
Make sure they are all activated to stop thieves from accessing your phone and personal data.

phone and keep a written note of it. If the phone is stolen, report it to the police and your mobile
provider to stop it being used.
