From our bank details to UPI ID, photos and data and social media, and much more, all our data is stored in the phone. In such a situation, if you have forgotten your phone there during the journey in the cab, then we are going to give you information about what you should do to reduce or avoid loss.
1. Edit your data remotely
Losing your phone can hit your pocket hard, but the data it holds is even more valuable and can be misused if it falls into the wrong hands. But the good news is that this data can be remotely erased from the device.
For iPhone users, you can use the Find My Device feature by going to iCloud.com and erasing the device.
For Android phones with a Google Account linked to the device, the Find My Device feature is automatically turned on and can be used to erase data. To use the feature, go to android.com/find.
2. Track Your Phone
With features like Find My Device for Android phones and the Find My iPhone feature for Apple iPhones, tracking your phone is easy. However, you will be able to see the location of the device only when it is online. In case the device is offline, its last location is shown before the device was turned off.
3. Keep Your Banking Information Safe
Even though all net banking applications have security pins etc., you really shouldn’t rely on them. Anyone who has your phone can still access your personal information and your account. So it is better that you change all your net banking passwords. In this case, if your net banking passwords are auto saved during shopping etc., then they will be closed.
Also, if you have written down information like ATM PIN, net banking passcode, etc. on your phone, call your bank and alert them.
4. Change Social Media Password
You never know who has your phone and how they might try to harm you. In today’s time social media can be used for identity theft, scams etc. So, change all your social media passwords and make sure you log out from all the devices to be safe from that threat.
5. Block your SIM card
To prevent the OTP from falling into wrong hands, message your network provider and get your SIM card blocked as soon as possible.
