Imagine you’re in an unknown place, surrounded by people you’ve never met before when all of a sudden your iPad is gone. Losing valuables tops the list of travel horrors.

It’s even worse when you realize you didn’t lose your iPad – it was stolen. This happens to thousands of airport travelers each year and there are measures you should take to protect yourself.
