Often, the lost valuable finds the owner before the owner realizes the item is lost. Okoban works even if the device is turned off or has no battery power.

Since the use of mobile electronic devices such as mobile phones and tablets is growing so rapidly, extra precaution must be taken for their protection and secure rapid recovery when lost. Since a mobile society cannot be without their cellphones, tablets and especially their data for long, Mystufflostandfound.com releases the new guide to “Protect & Recover Lost Cellphones & Tablets.”
Protect Your Data
1- Data must be backed up regularly. Losing the data stored on a mobile phone or tablet is more disastrous and costly than the lost phone or tablet. Today, these devices can hold more and more data and since data security is so very important, data loss is very costly. Data can be conveniently backed up on a home or office computer, a portable hard drive or with a verified encrypted cloud based backup service.
2- Devices that have the ability to encrypt data should have that capability enabled to prevent unauthorized access. Password protection should also be enabled for the phone or tablet, including access to email, voice mail, contacts, cloud access and Internet.
3- Avoid suspicious links and applications. Most devices have apps that can be activated to block applications that can automatically install. Spyware, malware and viruses are everywhere. Use only trustworthy anti-virus software and keep it current.
Enable Rapid, Secure & Private Recovery
Mobility invites the loss of electronic devices such as mobile phones and tablets. The Nashville based insurance provider Asurion reports 30 million phones go missing each year in the US alone. The problem is not that lost cell phones and tablets are never found – they almost always get found by someone. The real problem is that most likely the finder has no way to contact the owner, so the device stays lost.
Okoban® tracker tags from http://www.mystufflostandfound.com solve the problem by connecting finders with owners quickly, securely and privately, anywhere in the world. Finders simply enter the tracker tag’s Unique Identification (UID) code and the recovery location on the Okoban website. The system then immediately notifies the owner, anywhere in the world, with a secure email and text message of the found valuable and its recovery location.
Okoban tracker tags can protect phones, tablets, laptops, passports, luggage, purses, cameras, keys, credit cards, pets and other valuables.
"Now, with Okoban, any lost tablet, phone or other valuable can find its owner," says Gordon Burns, CEO of My Stuff Lost and Found. "Often, the lost valuable finds the owner before the owner realizes the item is lost," says Burns. “Okoban works even if the device is turned off or has no battery power. The finder does not need to go at risk of being tracked with a lost phone or tablet by turning the device on to try to find the owner,” says Burns.
