Top 7 Ways to Not Lose Your Phone on a Night Out
Updated: Feb 27
Losing your phone on a night out can be a frustrating and stressful experience. With all the excitement and distractions, it's easy to misplace your phone or leave it behind at a bar or restaurant. Here are some tips to help you avoid losing your phone on a night out:
1) Use a Phone Reminder Device
A Phone Reminder Device (such as the Prox PRD®) will alert when you are leaving your night spot. This is the best time to be notified before the phone is lost. It will alert at about 50 feet to 150 feet and give you a chance to grab your phone before someone else does.
2) Keep it Secure
Always keep your phone in a secure place, such as a pocket or purse, where it won't slip out or get left behind. Consider investing in a phone case with a wrist strap or a phone holder that you can wear around your neck to keep your phone close and within reach.
3) Lock Your Phone
Make sure your phone is locked before you leave it unattended, such as at a bar or
restaurant. This can prevent someone from accessing your personal information or making unauthorized purchases if your phone is lost or stolen. A locked phone is always less attractive to someone who wants to steal it.
4) Keep it On You
Whenever possible, try to keep your phone on you at all times, rather than setting it down on a table or bar. This will reduce the risk of losing it or having it stolen.
5) Be Careful with Drinks
Avoid setting your phone down on a surface that could be damaged by drinks, such as a wet bar or table. If you do set your phone down, make sure it's in a secure place where it won't be knocked over or spilled on.
6) Stay Alert
Pay attention to your surroundings and be mindful of where your phone is at all times. If you're in a busy or crowded environment, be especially careful to keep your phone close and secure.
7) Ask for Help
If you do lose your phone, don't hesitate to ask for help. Ask the staff at the bar or
restaurant if they've seen it, or reach out to friends who were with you that night to see if they have it.
Losing your phone on a night out can be a frustrating experience, but it doesn't have to be. By keeping your phone secure, using a tracking app, locking your phone, staying alert, and asking for help, you can reduce the risk of losing your phone and ensure that you always have it with you when you need it. Remember to enjoy yourself on your night out, but also be mindful of your belongings, including your phone.
