In principle, the program is a federal government initiative to combat the theft and loss of smartphones, which aims to increase the security of cell phone users.

Since the launch of Celular Seguro on December 19, 2023, the platform has registered more than 954 thousand registered phones and 818 thousand registered trusted people, in addition to 12 thousand blocking alerts.

Functionality and usefulness of Celular Seguro

Celular Seguro allows users to block criminals from accessing the telephone line and bank applications, notifying several partner institutions, such as ANATEL and banks, about the crime.

Available for Android and iPhone (iOS) through the website (in addition to browsers), this tool is a significant step towards making stolen cell phones useless to criminals.

Spikes in registrations

Most blockages were due to robberies, followed by theft and losses. The states of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Bahia, Pernambuco and Minas Gerais lead in registrations.

That said, the peak in registrations occurred during Christmas week, with more than 1,100 registrations in a single day, reflecting growing concerns about the security of mobile devices during the festivities.

How to use Secure Cell Phone

To use Celular Seguro, the user needs to download the application or access it via browser, and register the device.

This way, in the event of robbery, theft or loss, an alert can be sent immediately to lock the device, protecting personal information and preventing misuse.

Using native location apps

Furthermore, if you want to give your cell phone another layer of protection, it is also a good idea to use native location applications.

Locating lost cell phone on Android

Losing your phone can be a stressful experience, but luckily, Android offers an effective tool to help you locate it.

By using Google’s "Find My Device" feature, you can not only locate your smartphone but also remotely lock it or erase its data. Firstly, it is essential that the service is activated on your device.

To do this, go to "Settings", select "Security" and activate the "Find My Device" option. In case of loss, access the Find My Device website, log in with the Google account linked to your cell phone and see the approximate location of the device on the map.

If your cell phone is nearby, you can make it ring, even in silent mode. If you suspect it is in the wrong hands, you can block access to the device or, as a last option, erase all its data remotely to protect your personal information.

Tracking lost non-iOS cell phone

Next, for iPhone users, Apple offers the "Find" feature, a powerful tool for locating a lost or stolen device.

First of all, it is crucial to ensure that the "Find iPhone" function is activated in the iCloud settings on your device.

To do this, go to "Settings", click on your name, select "iCloud" and activate "Find iPhone". If lost, you can use another iOS device or go to iCloud.com in a web browser and sign in with your Apple credentials. When you select "Find iPhone", you will see a map with the location of all your Apple devices.

By clicking on the lost device, you can see its real-time location, play a sound to help find it if it is nearby, or activate "Lost Mode", which locks the device with a password and can display a personalized message on the screen Block.

If necessary, you also have the option to remotely erase all data on your iPhone, ensuring your information remains secure.
