Pickpocket stealing wallet from backpack

Use Tiktok's Simple Clothing Hack To Prevent Pickpockets While Traveling

By Jenna Busch


When it comes to traveling, getting pickpocketed is a serious issue. However, a clothing hack shared in a TikTok video by user @nancylilturtle can help you keep pickpockets at bay.
The clip shows the TikToker wearing a flat zippered, under-the-shirt waist bag, which, unlike an open backpack or a wallet sticking out of a pocket, might go unseen by pickpockets.
We're also shown an anti-theft purse. These often have locking zippers, slash-proof straps that can't be cut off, and RFID blockers that keep your credit cards from being scanned.
These features keep pickpockets from working on your bag for too long, as it ups their risk of being seen. Paired together, the two bags can effectively keep your belongings safe.
