Phone Tracking Helps Nab Suspects
Phone tracking software can be enabled on all smartphones. Over the past few months, several incidents of phone theft have occurred in Kommetjie. Victims who have tracking enabled have been able to provide Komwatch with their login credentials to track the phone. This has resulted in the successful apprehension of suspects and recovery of the stolen cellphone and other goods they may have stolen.
The first step is to make sure you have tracking set up on your phone. Here are some useful links, depending on the make of your cellphone:
1. Apple users https://www.icloud.com/#find (use your Apple ID and password)
2. Samsung users https://findmymobile.samsung.com
3. Microsoft users https://account.microsoft.com/devices/about
4. Android users https://www.google.com/android/find (use your Google account details) or https://myaccount.google.com/intro/find-your-phone
Once you've setup tracking, make sure you are able to provide the credentials to Komwatch in the case of theft of the device.
