Enhancing Phone Theft Awareness

Business Advice / Community / Security

Waterloo, like many parts of central London, faces a significant issue: phone theft. Thousands of mobile phones are swiped every year in London, and we want to prevent you from being the next target.

Here’s how you can protect yourself:

  • Stay aware of your surroundings 

. Don’t text while you’re walking, you won’t notice what’s going on around you. 

  • Avoid having devices on display, put them away! 

The harder it is to get to, the harder it is to steal. If you must use your phone, consider going hands-free or positioning yourself away from the roadside and close to a wall to prevent thieves from approaching unnoticed.

Staying alert is your best defence against phone theft. Eyes up, phones down.
