Cell phone losses increase at Coachella

View Comments

If you know anyone going to Coachella this weekend, tell them to keep a close eye on their cell phone.

According to a new study from mobile security company Lookout, the number of people looking for a lost phone at the huge music festival last weekend surged by 37 percent.

The company mapped its anonymized data with Foursquare’s API and compared the findings with the number of locates happening in the Indio area when Coachella isn’t in town.

Bottom line: If you want to avoid the cost of a new phone and the possible loss of privacy, know where your phone is at all times.
