    Have you ever been pick-pocketed? Ever dropped your phone or wallet from your pocket? How you avoid this problem? Is there any new inventions to solve this it?

    Back in the day, my first mobile phone got stolen from my coat at work.
    Didn’t make a big fuss about it as it gave me a reason to get a better phone.

    As for precautions, the iCloud lock from Apple is the best way to prevent people from stealing Apple devices. They can’t use it, safe for selling it for pieces of hardware.

    It goes without saying that you shouldn’t show where you keep your phone if you don’t want to encourage people to pickpocket you.

    I have never lost a phone or had one stolen. I've temporarily misplaced my phone in my own house but never actually lost it.

    I've been very fortunate over the years that I've never had a phone stollen from me. I normally keep my phone in a zipped pocket (so it discourages pick-pocketing) and I never leave it unattended lying on a table. It's always on me unless I'm at home.

    I have seen some cases out there where you can attach a lanyard to it. This can be placed around your neck 😃 Hope this helps a bit.

    I've had 2 wallets slip out of my pocket on 2 occasions. Not fun. Never lost a phone. As far as being pickpocketed, don't put your phone in your back pocket.
