Your phone just got stolen or lost and you’re casually sitting on your couch thinking of a new phone to purchase! I’m not saying that what you’re doing is wrong or that you should panic, but you might want to think of how to remove all the important stuff from your phone. Oh, yeah, a bell just rang, good. In this Article, Naijassador will show you how to remove those important stuff from your phone.

1: Remotely lock your phone

Okay, you want to buy a new phone, I get it but first things first, or you’re pained or hurt about your lost phone, I get it too, but you still have to do something about it.

The first thing you might want to do is to remotely lock your phone, and this feature is available to both iPhone and Android users.

To lock your iPhone remotely all you have to do is log into your iCloud account using another phone with your Apple ID and then click on the Find My iPhone feature, and voila, your phone automatically gets locked and prevents anyone from accessing the files on your phone. If you want to track it instead, you could turn on the “Lost Mode” to track your phone’s location. But to be able to do all this you must have enabled the “Find My” feature on your iPhone before losing it.

For Androids, all you have to do is to log into your Google account through another phone and enable the Find My Device feature, once you’ve accessed the account move ahead to “Secure Device” and change or set a new screen lock password. You can also erase everything in your phone from the “Find My Device” feature.

Thieves can use your Apple or Google Pay to make purchases on your phone, and you need to stop them. All you need to do is to contact your bank and tell them to cancel all the credit cards that were linked to your stolen phone, yeah, all of them. Yeah, it’s stressful and all, but can’t lose that hard-earned or given money, can you? So, it’s still worth the trouble.

3: Get the sim card blocked

What? The horror. Yes, you have a lot of contacts, and you care about them, right? So yeah, go get the sim blocked before scammers start calling them, acting like you, and ripping them off. To do this, call your sim’s customer care line notify them of the stolen sim card, and request for it to be blocked.

4: Warn as many people as you can

What happened to you is so unfortunate but you need to notify people of your stolen phone and warn them to be careful of any fraudulent activity that may be done by the thief posing as you.

Your phone being stolen is a big deal, it’s not as casual as you think, and I’m sorry that something that tragic happened to you but it’s going to be all good.  So, what are you waiting for? get off that couch and get to work.
