What you Should do if you Lost your Phone

What you Should do if you Lost your Phone

If you’re fumbling through your pockets and your trusty rectangle device is not where it should be, firstly, try not to panic. A lost or stolen has the potential to happen to anyone, and unfortunately, it has happened to you. Before you start learning on how to avoid this disaster in the future, for now, here’s what you should do when your phone is missing.

Use a Phone Locating App

The first thing you’ll need to do is determine if you have actually lost your phone or just misplaced it somewhere close to you. Borrow someone’s phone and try to call your phone. If you’re lucky, you might hear the familiar jingle somewhere around you, but if not. You can download a German phone locating app called the “handy orten app”, also called as the handy orten ohne app, that helps users to track and locate other phones (or in German, handy orten)  in a case of emergency.

Immediately Change any Important Passwords

If the first step didn’t work for you, immediately change any passwords that are linked to your personal information, such as your email, social platforms, and your online banking account password.

Contact your bank company and your phone carrier

Immediately have your phone carrier to stop the service on your phone and have your current number transferred to a new phone. Also, if you believe that you are at risk of losing highly sensitive information, call your bank company and report on your lost phone.

Wipe out your phone remotely

Finally, once you are completely sure that your phone is stolen and there can never be a chance of getting it back, find an app that can remotely wipe your device. The most important thing at the moment is that your information is safe and secured.
