Smartphones Aren’t What they Used To Be!

Smartphones Aren’t What they Used To Be!

Each year, more than 700,000 Smartphones are lost in the UK, according to O2!




Losing your Smartphone

We no longer use our mobile phones just to make calls – we now use our smartphones for email, social networking, mobile banking, maps and games, or even as diaries.

So if we were to lose or break a handset, many of us would be lost. Losing your phone can also be an expensive problem. Today, one in four people have insurance cover. But this insurance is often not cheap; it can add hundreds of pounds a year to your annual phone costs.


Protect yourself!

Mobile phones, cameras, ipads, laptops, passports, wallets and other valuable items can all be a nightmare when mislaid. Yet if they do arrive at a lost-property office or police station only approximately 25% are returned to the owner because there is no simple way to track down the owner. After less than a month the 75% that’s left is generally auctioned.

HomingPIN is here to solve just that issue. Our service puts the owner and finder of lost property together, so that mislaid and lost property can be returned and reunited with its owner.

How HomingPIN works

The finder simply connects to the owner by going online to, or if an airport by using their WorldTracer system for baggage handling. By inputing their details and the homingPIN number(s) found a text message is sent instantly to the owner. The finder is not given information about the owner.

The owner then contacts the finder and arranges to get their property back. We provide 2 ways to make that happen:

1.For airlines we provide the airline with information on where the bag is instantly it is found. They will then contact you and arrange for immediate transfer. No more waiting for them to find your bags, and you no longer wait in frustration to hear about when you will get them back.

2. Where property is found anywhere else we can provide, at reasonable cost, a method of getting your property back from anywhere in the world. That includes luggage when the owner has returned home internationally.

When travelling anywhere, be sure to protect all your luggage and valuable items with HomingPIN, you won’t regret it!
