Hello MIUIers

Smartphones form an integral part of our lives. Let’s face it: whether you are a student or a working professional; you simply cannot go a day without your smartphone, isn't it?

It is the only gadget that goes with you wherever you go – at work or school, at a date, by your bedside, in a meeting or simply while having lunch – it is the last thing you look at before going to bed at night and the first thing you look at when you wake up. Your smartphone is always by your side.


Unfortunately, this combined with the fact that there is a growing market for cheap smartphones, which also means that your smartphone is always at a greater risk of being stolen. It could be as simple as forgetting it somewhere, or even having it snatched right up from you.

Today Mi Bunny is going to share certain tips on how to prevent smartphone thefts and what to do in case it’s already gone. While we wish that you never experience smartphone thefts or that you lose your smartphone, it is something that can happen to anyone. So here are a few preventive & preparatory tips for you.

1. Keep Safe in Public and Be smart

Common sense: When not in use, keep your phone stored securely in a zippered bag or front pocket and on you at all times. Guys, don’t put it in your back jeans pocket. Ladies, if you keep your phone in your handbag, try to keep it in a zippered internal compartment, and always keep your bag closed even when carrying it with you.


2. Add Contact Info to Your Lock Screen

It is always a great idea to add a contact name add number to you look screen. In the event that you lose your phone and someone finds it, they will know whom to call. Add the contact of someone you trust and notify this person.

3. Mark Your Phone

Marking your phone and its battery with an ultra-violet pen is another way to prove ownership if it goes missing. We don’t recommend writing a name or address; instead, try your email or phone number. Writing your driver’s licence number and state will also make it easy for you to be tracked down by police if your device is recovered.

4. Keep Your Phone Locked


Make use of your phone’s option to lock the home screen with a PIN or code; shockingly, around 54% of smartphone owners don't password protect their device. And on the subject of setting a PIN or passcode – you may not need reminding, but don’t make it easily guessable. So no birthdays, ‘1234’ or ‘6969’.

If you’re worried about emergencies, make sure you add the emergency contact info to your lock screen like we said above. However, please ensure that your phone is locked. This makes sure your data doesn’t fall into the wrong hands in the event of smartphone thefts. If your phone supports the fingerprint unlocking, we strongly suggest you use it for extra protection.

5. Get Tracking

There are many ways to find a lost device. If you’re an Android user, Google made it easy to find your lost phone. Simply log in to your smartphone’s Google account and search for “Find my phone” in Google search engine.

You will be able to: Locate your phone, Make it ring, Lock it remotely, Sign out of your account on your lost phone, and Leave an emergency number on the screen.

Another way is to visit Google’s Android device Manager. Once you sign in to your Google account, you will be able to :
Ring your phone – even if you have the ringer turned down or off; Lock your phone and display a message on the locked screen; Remotely wipe your phone – which essentially means deleting all your data.

For MIUI users, similar functionalities are available via Mi Could. All you have to do is sign in to your Mi Could account and select the icon “Find device”.

6. Back Up You Data

We take photos, record videos and save files on our phones every day. These are precious and could be lost forever in the event that you lose your phone. That is why we recommend that you backup your phone’s data to your computer on a regular basis. The easiest way to do it is to set up your smartphone so that it automatically backs up to the cloud when connected to Wi-Fi.

Losing your smartphone is never pleasant. We hope the above information helps you maintain cognizance when handling your phone. We also hope that you never lose your phone.

Have you ever lost your phone or had it stolen?
