An Open Home Window
Thieves have been known to easily access people’s homes through open windows. Make sure that you close up all your windows every time you leave a room, even if it’s just for a moment. If you find yourself unable to close the window because of, say, warm weather or an open door preventing you from reaching it without walking outside, then have all your valuables tucked away so they are not easily accessible to thieves.
Your Car Window:
Rolling your window down and feeling the cool breeze is something everyone enjoys, especially criminals. Try by all means to avoid having your phone displayed on the dashboard, keep all valuables out of sight and reach from ready to snatch hands.
Your Back Pocket:
There is no better opportunity for a pickpocketer than having your phone or wallet in your back pocket. Firstly, nobody has eyes at the back of their head, so you can’t see them and a simple bump could bump up the number of things you have had stolen from you.
Your Restaurant Table:
You’re looking at a delicious plate and they are looking at your cell phone. Putting your phone on the table makes it visible and easy to snatch. Always have your phone in your bag or pocket and out of sight for potential thieves.
