Small, portable and high value, mobile devices, and the information stored in them are attractive to criminals. The damage inflicted by mobile device theft is wide. For the victim, the experience can be traumatic as well as costly. In countries where theft is rife, insurance companies have to charge high premiums, consumers can unwittingly buy stolen goods and the legitimate handset market and the taxes it generates are undermined.
Through the GSMA Device Registry service, more than 120 mobile operators across more than 40 countries share information on stolen devices on a daily basis in order to block network access.
