If you have been following this blog, you know that I dealt with the issue of extortion rather often;
- Avoid traveling with jewelry, expensive cameras and a lot of cash,
- If you are working on your laptop, always use a trustworthy cloud service or an external storage device as a backup (the same for tablets and mobile phones),
- Use apps such as “112 where are u”, available on Android and iOS to get in touch with local law enforcement Authorities (please, check if such apps works in the target country before traveling there)
- Look at your Ministry of Foreign Affairs website for additional information and alerts.
