Keep the following things in mind to prevent theft while traveling:

 Always be aware of the things you are carrying. Whether that be the wallet in your pocket, or the purse on your shoulder, stay conscious of your items. Purses are easy targets for pick pocketing so make sure it is in front, and not behind you. Don’t forget about the wallet in your back pocket. If you are in a particularly crowded area, put it in your front pocket.
