Trip Report Beware of pickpocketing on baecelona's metro

Jump to last reply

I'm sure this subject has been covered before, but use great caution on the metro in Barcelona. We witnessed a couple who had been pickpocketed and then had our kindle and iPad stolen from my backpack the next day. My backpack was securely fastened and it happened so quickly that we never knew what happened.

Remember, if you lose an iPhone or iPad, you can contact the Apple Store and deactivate your device so that the culprits will be unable to use them and take any of your info off them. If you have wifi on your device, the Apple Store may be able to trace it. Not sure if authorities would get involved though.

Luckily we keep money, passports and credit cards all in our money belts. Beware!
