As we often see in our surroundings, smartphones are mostly stolen day to day. It has now become a challenge for us to protect our smartphones from thieves. Smartphones are costly and such costly smartphones are stealing.
The most dangerous disadvantage of mobile theft is that the thief can use your private data and other materials of your smartphone. So, it is really very necessary to protect smartphones from thieves.
The most important and genuine approach to protect your smartphone from thieves is to keep your phone close and never leave it in any strange place. Simply, always keep your smartphone in your pocket. In addition, some technical ways are also available in the market that will help you protect your costly smartphones from theft.
So, here I’m going to tell you two such ways:
1. Use Secure Cases For Smartphones
As we all know, it is more difficult to protect smartphones or tablets than laptops and computers from thieves. There are several ways I discussed in my previous article to protect laptops from thieves such as Kensington port locks etc.
But, smartphones and tablets don’t have such type of security ports to lock them. In such cases, various companies launched secure cases for smartphones and tablets. These cases lock your device with the desk and no one can take out them without your permission.
Some of the popular companies providing these cases are Kensington and Rokform. You can buy these secure cases simply from online shopping websites.
2. Use Anti-Theft Apps & Software
It is very necessary to have anti-theft apps on your smartphones and tablets. These apps and software protect your smartphone from thieves and if stolen, they help to locate or track your smartphone or tablet.
These apps also help you to find your smartphone when you misplace it, password protect your data and so many features.
Whether you have an Android Phone, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, or Apple smartphone such as an iPhone or iPad, several anti-theft apps are available in the market for each of the above smartphone companies.
Here are some best anti-theft apps for different smartphones:
