Immobilise - a valued partner in crime prevention

Immobilise is the world's largest free register of possession ownership details. These details are searchable by all UK Police Forces and form a very effective tool in helping to identify and return recovered, lost or stolen personal property to its rightful owner. These details are held on a secure system that is approved to Government standards.

What will you need to register?

You will need to create an account that you have total control over. You will need the IMEI number, make and model of your phone. You can enter other property on your account and will need descriptions, serial numbers and photographs of your prized possessions.

How do I get the IMEI number of my phone?

The IMEI is usually found printed inside the battery compartment of the handset, except on iPhones where it is located on a pull-out tray. It can also be displayed on the screen of the phone by entering *#06# into the keypad. If your phone is new, the IMEI should also be labelled on the side of the box. Your network provider can also provide you with your IMEI.

What happens when my phone is registered?

Should your phone be lost or stolen, and Police recover it, they can quickly establish who the real owner is and restore the property.

Can I highlight my phone as stolen on my account?

Yes, Immobilise has a feature for the owner of a phone to instantly update the status on their account as lost or stolen. It is still essential that you report it to the Police and your network.
