1.- Leave your mobile at home
If when you get out of the pool and discover that your mobile has been stolen you are going to cry, then it is best to leave it at home, since no one can guarantee 100% that your smartphone will not disappear if you carry it. Obviously, this applies to both the beach and the pool. The difference is that on the beach, in addition to stealing it, you can also get him to buy music for life if you drop it on the sand. Yes, you will have something similar to a rattle, but with which you can play Angry Birds.
2.- Choose the beach or pool well
Let’s face it, and let’s not be hypocrites. In all cities there are several swimming pools, and there are always one or two that people most prone to stealing mobiles tend to go to. Let’s choose the others, the ones that seem more secure. It is not that it is impossible for our mobile to be stolen, but at least we will be allowed to use it. In certain places, taking out your mobile means becoming a target for multiple thieves.
3.- Take a cheap mobile
If you do not plan to use applications, and you only want it in case they call you, take the cheapest mobile you have. You don’t have to carry the Samsung Galaxy S4 because it is the most advanced smartphone you have. The one who is seeing that you have it also thinks like you, and it is possible that within a couple of hours, it will be the most advanced smartphone that you NO longer have. If you have a cheap mobile, change the card.
4.- Store the mobile in the fridge
I have learned this this summer. And it makes perfect sense. When a thief is going to steal a mobile, he looks in the bags, or looks for special cases for the smartphone, where it can be, even in pockets that usually carry beach or pool bags. They will not look where the Cokes are. Well, just keep your phone in the fridge. The different soft drinks will make the smartphone go unnoticed. What’s more, you could even design a camouflage case for your smartphone. With a juice carton, or with a dark bottle, you could cut the bottom of it, and insert the smartphone there. Now, be careful that others do not see that you keep your mobile in the fridge.
5.- Buy a desert island
It’s a great way to prevent your mobile from being stolen. We could almost say that it is an infallible system. You buy a desert island, and thus you ensure that no one can steal your smartphone. An island can have a price of between 500,000 and 40,000,000 dollars, and we leave you a link where you can buy an island. Now, if you come across a polar bear on that island, it is best to take the first plane back, or to talk to the Dharma corporation to find out when they are going to install 4G LTE coverage.
6.- Buy a waterproof cover
They sell them in the Chinese. They are covers for the smartphone, bags in which we can also put the documentation and that allow them to be put in the water without the interior getting wet. There are covers adapted even to each smartphone. With these covers, you can take your smartphone with you when you go to bathe, so no one can steal it from you. Now, if you finally opt for this option, we recommend that you do not choose to buy the cover in the Chinese.
7.- Buy a Sony Xperia Z
And if you don’t want to complicate things, the best thing you can do is buy a Sony Xperia Z. You can take it to the water when you shower, without the need for a cover. It is perfect. Even if you don’t want to take it into the water, as it is resistant to sand, you can make a hole, put your phone away, fill the hole, and take it when you go.
8.- Install an anti-theft application
The truth is that I do not know why we call them anti-theft applications, if they are only used when your mobile is stolen. They will be more prorogation applications, because their success is based on the fact that mobile phones are stolen, or perhaps postrobo applications. Either way, the truth is that applications such as Prey, myXperia, or the new CyanogenMod app, can help us locate the smartphone when it has been lost, we can block it, or know the location where it is. The last phase is to hire a team of Kosovar Albanians who have the courage to recover a smartphone that someone has stolen from you.
9.- Do the opposite of this
If you see that this post is being shared a lot on social networks, do the opposite of this, since the fridge will be the first place they will look for your mobile. If you share it, try to make sure that none of the people around you at the beach or pool can read it.
10. Buy an iPhone
And don’t forget to buy an iPhone instead of an Xperia Z. Apple’s smartphone is already very old and from the last century, nobody would steal something like that from you. Most likely, they will feel sorry for the fact that you have such an old phone, and they will even give you one of those that they have previously stolen and that is of better quality as a gift, something like a Samsung Galaxy Mini.
