Police posted this photo on Facebook looking for leads. An unsuspecting couple pictured on a stolen iPhone has caught the imagination of West Aucklanders and high- lighted the need for smartphone security. The iPhone, which retails for about $1000, was stolen on December 5 during a house bur- glary in Avondale. The owner had in- stalled a programme that emails new photos taken on the device back to him, undetected by the alleged thieves. Whether the pair was caught red-handed or simply caught in the middle has yet to be determined by police still investigating the matter. The photo was shared more than 8000 times from the Auckland police Facebook site. It has generated many leads from the public, Avon- dale police intelligence officer Logan Ewers says. We re following lines of inquiry which are so far proving to be right on the money. Figures released by the market intelligence firm IDC late last year showed New Zealand s adoption of smartphones has risen dramatically, from 13 per cent to 44 per cent of the country s households in just a year. Typical smartphones retail between $129 to $1400, making them a popular target for theft, Senior Sergeant Julian Conder says. He says people are complacent about where they use and leave their phones. People go into their own little world when they re on the phone without being aware about who s around. Phones are often snatched from people s hands as they re being used, or taken when left unattended, Mr Conder says. New Lynn police watchhouse manager Warren Strand says about 90 per cent of those reporting stolen smartphones are not using protective applica- tions. With the Find My iPhone app we could find out in real time where a phone is. We had a lady come in to the station and we could see what she thought was her stolen phone moving on the map. Mr Strand says that type of technology is invaluable. If we can get an address that the phone is at it certainly gives us means to visit the address . . . sometimes it s as simple as calling the phone when we re there. Mr Conder says with- out this information it s very hard for police to locate the stolen prop- erty, which typically gets sold very quickly. The other day we had a guy who stole a $400 phone from West Wave aquatic centre and sold it for $20. He didn t need the phone, he just wanted the cash. Western Computers owner Scott Trask says apps are helpful but it s still important to record your phone s serial num- ber. With every good app there will be aftermarket apps that people will make to disable the security apps. If you have a third-party app, keep it hidden. Hold tight: Those with smartphones are urged to stay vigilant against thieves, even when walking through town.
