Here's a great idea for protecting your phone, tablet, laptop and even your camera, keys, credit cards, luggage, pet and passport while traveling. Two years ago, I found MYSTUFFLOSTANDFOUND and obtained tracker tags for OKOBAN, a free global lost and found service. I placed tracker tags on all of my valuables. It paid off in Florence. I left my passport at a restaurant at lunch. That afternoon, I received a text message and email from Okoban saying that my passport was reported found. I did not know it was even missing. The cafe reported the found passport’s tracker number online and I was immediately notified (text and email). I called the number in the text message which also listed the location for retrieval. My Okoban tag from MYSTUFFLOSTANDFOUND on my passport saved my trip. The finder had a way to find me.
