  • 67,000 phones lost during London 2012 - Mobile Phone Insurance
    during our 17 day celebration of our athletic talent That s a lot of money and a lot of stress for phone users The number of phones that have gone missing will never be able to be counted but you can guarantee that there would have been plenty of opportunities for criminals to get their hands on some great technology People have their guard down when they are enjoying themselves in an event that comes along once in a lifetime and unfortunately there are people who will exploit this With 20 000 mobile phones being stolen every day in the UK and the population of London rising by a third during the Olympics Security analysts at Venafi have stated that an estimated 200 million books of sensitive data could have been stolen at the conclusion of the games There s been an explosion of corporate data available to users from their mobile devices This is a real danger and one that is often overlooked Gregory Webb Venafi Vice President of Marketing told PC Advisor in July People don t consider or take action to protect the vast volumes of information they carry and have internet access to With the ever shrinking boundaries between work devices and work enabled personal devices lost or stolen smartphones and other mobile devices that fall into the wrong hands place companies and business data at tremendous risk There will be some kind of report on the levels of criminality during the games released but it probably won t be until after the Paralympic Games and the euphoria of the nation has died down a little One thing is for certain though The number of mobile phone insurance claims could be through the roof in the final two quarters of 2012 Leave a Reply Click here

  • Mobiles at the Olympics - Mobile Phone Insurance
    memory The social media world was inundated with photos from the event that captured the imagination of the world Moments like Usain Bolt and Mo Farah s signature celebration swap becoming one of the most retweeted photos of the games The Financial Times reported that Smartphones were being used to watch the Olympics more than desktops Mobile technology and the Olympics seemed to be a perfect match It wasn t all plain sailing though and at the beginning of the games it was feared the mobile companies would not be able to deal with the amount of usage that the games would generate It certainly seemed that way when mobile phone usage was blamed for the GPS signals on the cyclists not being picked up properly which affected some of the quality of the early races The London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games LOCOG and Olympic Broadcasting Service OBS were blaming each other but O2 the phone company in charge of the network took the brunt of the criticism An O2 spokesman said There was a capacity issue with Box Hill at the weekend You can imagine that all of the people around that area were frantically using their phones so that was the reason for the oversubscription If we see congestion we do everything we can to minimise it by making adjustments to our network In the end this interference was a minor hindrance to what was a fantastic games that was void of any catastrophic mobile network errors Our phones are capable of catching incredible events as they happen and social media is perfect for helping us record them Mobiles and smartphones have slowly become an integral part of our bid to record history The Olympics are over for another four years but we ve

  • 30% of claims "fraudulent" by 2015? - Mobile Phone Insurance
    already been made in the first six months of 2012 said Peter Clancy who is Head of Security and Investigations for LSG We understand the police are exceptionally busy so we work with our partners in order to present these cases on a plate Photo Source Truston com The smartphone market is rife with fraudulent claims with a number of claims emerging just prior to the release of a new product For example when the new Apple iPhone 5 is released there will be a number of claims for lost or stolen 4G and 4GS handsets just before Just before the launch of the iPhone 4S LSG reported that claims went up by 300 This is quite a sad testament to our society showing just how important having the best technology on the market has become Some would argue that this kind of fraud was inevitable In this time of economic uncertainty technology can be seen by some as a way of showing that all is well especially to young children and teenagers who don t have the same concept of money as their parents and will still expect the best phones computers and other material goods But it is also a way for small crime networks to make quick money from stolen or illegally obtained phones But this is something that the LSG are clamping down on with frontline staff being trained to spot claims that they believe to be fraudulent so that they can pass them on to the investigations team The data is then shared with other insurance companies so that they can learn to detect patterns of insurance fraud With these procedures in place the LSG and their partners can at least send a message to fraudulent claimers that they are being watched and that they

  • Lost your phone? There's an App for that... - Mobile Phone Insurance
    for up to two minutes even if a phone is on silent at the point you lose it so whether it s been dropped in a bin or left in a bar you can narrow your search significantly The app can also wipe all personal data from your device and block it from being used in the event that it has been stolen to make it useless for the thief meaning they are more likely to dump it The Drawbacks The popularity of the app means that more and more criminals are becoming aware of the time limit they have before the app will start to track their whereabouts meaning they are turning off the device quickly to stop the app from locating the stolen item It s still valuable when your phone has been lost but when it comes to thwarting criminals in the act it isn t exactly perfect What are People Saying It s a mixed bag of reviews really some think it s the best thing since sliced bread and others think it s a waste of time The positive comments seem to outweigh the bad but there are occurrences of disgruntled users who feel the app doesn t quite live up to expectations even with the latest additions of bug fixes and stability enhancements In short if your phone is lost or stolen then the chances are you will want to give this a try and it could make the difference between a lost phone and a near miss so remember to prepare your device before it s too late In order for your phone to be tracked it must have internet connection via a registered network and you will need to be an iCloud user One final thought don t forget to download this

  • Most mobile phone thieves dump the handset without selling it on - Mobile Phone Insurance
    of the best phones on the market at their disposal We all use them regularly for texts emails and surfing the web and that makes us targets We can keep them hidden but who wants to do that You don t want to feel like we live in a society where you constantly have to watch your back In a recent interview with the BBC Jack Wraith a senior member of the board at MICAF Mobile Industry Crime Action Forum stated that they are constantly trying to find ways to prevent the ease to which the unblocking of phones can happen He said that the going rate is around 10 to 50 to have a phone unblocked and that while it is unfortunate software hacking is always going to be possible Most people have one and thieves will always take whatever valuables a person has on them during a robbery said Mr Wraith Often a person is not targeted for their phone taking it can be as simple as not wanting the victim to have the means to report the theft immediately A huge number of stolen phones are not unblocked or sold on they are just dumped Dealing with the aftermath of the crime is just as hard as by the time you ve gone to the police the thief will be long gone With the type of crime the likelihood is that it isn t going to be a priority for the police unless someone is seriously hurt in the attack If the crime is a simple theft of a phone regardless of how traumatic it can be for the victim chances are it will not escalate into an investigation that leads to a conviction The best way to deal with the threat is just to be careful and tick the boxes of what you know you can do to prevent the theft of your phone Getting mobile insurance cover when you buy the phone would be a good place to start At least you know then that you can get your phone replaced if it s stolen lost or damaged Although it may sound silly just by not attracting attention to yourself you lower the risk of being targeted You know when you feel the urge to walk through the town with your music playing through your phone without wearing headphones Probably not a great idea Keep a low profile when using your phone and you will drastically lower your risk of becoming another sad statistic They are iconic and will be one of those nice to have items said Mr Wraith The industry along with the police and the government are concerned they will cause a peak in robberies With mobile phone subscriptions rising from 17 million in 1999 to 72 million in 2007 alone the likelihood of stamping out phone theft altogether is highly unlikely These types of crimes are inevitably going to happen but by being vigilant and careful when using our phones we
