What should you do to take care of your wallet in crowded places?

When you travel to a resort, hang out at the park or go shopping, you risk being pickpocketed. What should you do in order to to protect your wallet and phones from thieves?

Meng Lay, 23 years old, who had his wallet stolen, said that he is always careful in public.

“When I go to a crowded place such as the Water Festival, hang out, shop or go somewhere where there is lots of people, I often put my valuable stuff such as money, phone and wallet into my sides pocket rather than the back, and I check my pockets every several minutes.”

He added that if he goes into a crowded area with his bag, he puts all his valuable stuff into the bag and carries it in front of his body. Doing so forces the thieves to reach in front of him and risk touching his hands.

After using your wallet or phone, you should put it as deep as possible into your pocket and not leave it sticking out. If an area is very crowded, you should consider taking an alternative route.
