Losing your most prized gadget on a bus or in the back of a taxi may become a thing of the past thanks to a new scheme from gadget insurers Protect Your Bubble.
They’ve teamed up with TagBak, who offer a novel way of getting your tech back to you should you misplace it when out and about. Print off a little TagBak sticker with a unique ID and TagBak contact number, attach it to your phone, MP3 player or other gadget, and should someone come across it they can contact TagBak who will send out a courier to collect it and return it to you.
Of course it depends on the honesty of the stranger who found the gadget in the first place, but a reward is offered and clearly stated on the TagBak sticker, meaning it’s potentially “win/win” for all parties involved.
TagBak support usually costs £12.95, but Protect Your Bubble are offering TagBak recovery for three gadgets, free of charge when you sign up for insurance with them.
“We’ve found that although gadget insurance from Protect your bubble softens the blow of losing your phone or laptop, nothing can replace the original gadget with all the phone numbers and data stored on these expensive devices” said Stephen Ebbett from Protect Your Bubble.
“We’re thrilled to offer our customers a fantastic way to get your original gadget back to stop our customers losing a device which may have taken them months to set-up properly.”
