The theft of cell phones is very common in any part of the world and, particularly, in places of tourism, taking advantage of the distraction of travelers who are behind the photo and the memory of the trip. The street, anywhere in the world, is a terrain that can have hundreds of unforeseen events or lead us to live a bad moment or be a victim of insecurity.
In this situation, we recommend a series of steps to follow once you have suffered a theft abroad, particularly to avoid the use of the device or the line. The first thing to do is to file a report, either at a local police station or through the local number you have for this type of actions.
Then comes the blocking of the device and its line. The IMEI number -the unique identification code of each smartphone-, prevents its continued use. This situation usually discourages theft and subsequent marketing of the stolen phone.
Today, the devices themselves have applications to carry out both tracking and nullification of their functions. The Device Manager, in case of loss or theft, will allow the device to be located or even blocked.
To this we can add different apps that allow us to track our phone. There are apps that show us in real time where our device is located through the website or platform of the application company.
For all this and, to avoid bad moments, one of the options for WIFI at all times when abroad is MIOWIFI. It can connect up to five devices and allow us to be always in contact with our family or also to track our device in case we have suffered a theft.
