  • While staying at hotels, always keep your door locked whenever you are in your room. For added safety, keep the safety chain on to prevent any forced entry.
  • Before opening the door to anyone, use the peephole. If the person is not in a hotel uniform or looks suspicious, do not open the door. Be wary of revealing your identity on the telephone, especially if you are traveling alone.
  • You are a tourist but you don't need to let the whole world know that. Don't look like a tourist. Looking at maps in your car or on the street is a dead give-away. A camera hanging around your neck all the time is also not a sound idea.
  • Don't flash money around. Just keep enough to meet your immediate needs. When traveling, your best protection is to be knowledgeable and alert. To travel with confidence and a positive attitude.
  • Carry a pepper spray with you, always and keep it handy. Don’t tuck it too low in your bag.   
  • Hold your bag as tightly as you can when you are taking public transport. You can use it to hit your predator.
  • When you are walking on a road, keep your mobile phone handy but avoid using it. Being on the phone makes you less alert.  
  • When you are travelling in an auto alone, make sure you share the auto number with someone in your family even if it’s during the day.
  • Similarly, if you have booked a cab, always share your coordinates with someone.   
  • When in office, avoid going to isolated areas with no CCTV cameras.
  • If you have parked your car, always look underneath, especially at night or at a less-crowded area. 
  • Whenever you are posting anything on social media, make sure you don’t do it in real-time. Because if you do, you’re telling people on your social media about your whereabouts. Delay those posts by say, 20-30 minutes.
  • Always ensure you aren’t posting anything on your social media with your address or phone number on it. 
  • Whenever you are giving out order for delivery at a grocery store, make sure you whisper your address or write it down somewhere and give it to the shopkeeper. Never announce it.
  • Whenever you are getting your phone recharged, if it’s at a store, don’t loudly speak up your phone number. 
  • Always pour your own drinks at parties and don’t ever take drinks from complete strangers or even friends. If you’ve left your drink unattended for even a few minutes, leave it and get a fresh drink. It may have been spiked when you weren’t looking.
  • If you feel someone is stalking you, try to find a crowded place and call someone for help.
