How to prevent yourself from being pickpocked




Looking to travel, but not sure how to prevent yourself from being a target by crafty pickpockets? Unfortunately, there are only a few things you can do to prevent your personal belongings from being taken. Below we’ll list some actionable tips and products that can help protect you from thieves.

Tourists nowadays are easy targets for native thieves who know all the popular tourist areas. Usually, thieves operate in groups that are specially trained to distract and take advantage of unsuspecting and compassionate travelers.

When looking for a potential victim, thieves will “mark” their targets and spread out in formation to set the distraction and theft in motion. Thieves are experts in understanding their potential victims behavior and belongings before “marking” their victim.

Once your “marked” there is very little you can do. This is because many of these thieves in highly populated tourists areas have most likely been in operation for years, developing hundreds of highly skilled tactics in order to deceive and take advantage of their victims.

Any skilled thieve or team of thieves does this exact same thing. So the point becomes not what can you do to prevent your goods from being stolen, but what can you do to not be “marked.”
