It was with this in mind that in addition to our electronic tracking system we also send labels to our customers with special codes on them. This allows our customers an added layer of protection, as not everyone is a thief and by using this system airline personnel can easily get in touch with the device owner. Another benefit of the code is that the owner of the device does not need to engrave contact details in case the device is stolen, it helps prevent identity theft for our customers.
