Losing Your Phone? — Thieves vs. Ourselves
Have you ever thought about who is really the culprit when you lose your phone?
These days thieves search high and low for opportunities to snag our most prized personal item — our phone, because it contains the most sensitive information, namely bank accounts, address book, passwords, social security numbers, and much more. With that said, it certainly doesn't help when these thieves are given a helping hand in obtaining all of this information.
We are so engulfed with our daily activities and routines that it's easy for us to forget about where our phone is at all times, and because of this, we are bound to forget about our phone and leave it behind somewhere, be it at home, work, or at a coffee shop.
How can I avoid losing my phone?
Studies have shown that we are 2 times more likely to leave our phone behind and lose it than have it stolen, thus making ourselves the single biggest enemy that our phones face every single day. If you leave your phone behind in an unsecured public location long enough, it will likely be picked up by a stranger who won't be returning it to you any time soon. The moment you leave your phone behind, you are essentially battling against a timer before you lose it forever. In a nutshell, be quick!
To put this into perspective, 44% of phones are stolen because the owners left them behind, with 75% of phones that are left behind are done so unknowingly.
Trackers have made the effort to help find your phone once you've already lost it, but not without putting undue stress on your heart and sanity. And trackers only help you if you are still within Bluetooth® proximity of your phone; if you are further away, then good luck. Even if you have a tracker, you won't be completely calm until you recover the phone and it's actually in your hand. By the time you retrieve your phone, you might've already taken some precious time off your life. Was it worth it? And who's to say that your phone won't get stolen before you even get to it? When you lose your phone, you have no other choice but to buy a new one, and it won't be cheap.
Get notified when you leave your phone behind
Enter the Prox PRD®, a phone reminder device that reliably and consistently alerts you before you even get a chance to leave your phone behind and possibly lose it. When you forget about your phone, Prox PRD doesn't. It keeps an "eye" out for your phone 24/7 so you can put all of your concentration into conquering your day. Prox Devices® stands by the statement: you can't lose your phone if you never leave it behind.
When you misplace or lose your phone and you have nothing to help you find it, you play hide and seek with your phone; when you have a tracker, you play Marco Polo with your phone, and that's only if you are in the vicinity of the phone. Playing both of those games is never fun, no matter how you look at it, especially when you are busy or in a hurry. So why not just get a Prox PRD and prevent misplacing and losing your phone in the first place. It makes a lot of sense, and saves you a lot of cents (from having to get a new one).
If we are our phone's greatest enemy, then we can also be our phone's saving grace. As much as we use our phone each and every day, we can't possibly give it 100% of our attention. But the Prox PRD can; it gives your phone all the attention it needs when you can't. With the Prox PRD, your daily grind will surely be a lot smoother.
Don't take my word for it. Get a Prox PRD® now and experience it for yourself.
