Ever notice how you can never find your car keys in the morning? Or your phone over the weekend?
You're not the only one! We're creatures of habit even when it comes to losing our things, so we took a closer look at the ‘losers’ in the Chipolo community and your losing patterns.
Here's what we found! We hope it helps you pay a little extra attention when your things are about to go missing again...
Which countries are the biggest ‘losers’?
USA, France, Germany, the UK, and Italy.
These are the top 5 countries with the most users in the Chipolo community, but they are not the ones that use their Chipolos the most.
What do people in these countries look for most often?
They might forget more, but they still search for the same things the rest of us do: home and car keys, wallets, and backpacks.
Who double presses their Chipolo to find their phone the most?
The winner is the US!
But a few others also often use their Chipolo to find their missing phones: Finland, Norway, and Taiwan are the other top countries where people often look for their phones.
What day of the week makes us most forgetful?
Keep a closer eye on your things at the end of the week, because the busiest day for the Chipolo app is Sunday!
The whole weekend seems to make us a little extra forgetful because Sunday is closely followed by Saturday in the number of times Chipolo users use the Chipolo app.
And it makes sense.
The weekend is a time to relax and step out of our regular patterns, so we also tend to leave our things in places where we wouldn't usually put them down during the week.
What time of the day do things disappear the most?
The hours between 10 in the evening and midnight seem to hold a special ‘forgetting’ power that makes us misplace our things more than we do during the day.
The extra forgetfulness is probably linked to the fact that we unwind and let our guard down towards the end of the day.
What things do Chipolo finder tags look for most often?
No surprises here, the things Chipolo finders look for the most are also the things we find at the top of almost every Lost & Found list around the world:
Keys, car keys, backpacks, wallets and bikes.
The top 5 tags that Chipolers use in the Chipolo app seem to confirm this too:
Chipolo, Keys, Car Keys, Backpack, and Wallet.
How many people need a reminder to take their things with them?
Almost 70% of Chipolo users have the Out of Range Alerts enabled for their Chipolos.
Thursday seems to be the busiest day of the week, where the Out of Range Alerts feature is triggered the most.
And who gets the most reminders?
The country with the largest number of forgetful people seems to be Montenegro, where there are the most Out of Range Alerts per number of Chipolo users.
How many ask others to help them find their lost things?
Not many, it seems.
Only about 7% of Chipolo users use the Share feature in the Chipolo app to boost their finding power by sharing their device or Chipolo with their loved ones.
So what is the key takeaway here?
Well, if you’re from the US, make sure to keep all your things in your pockets every Sunday from 10 pm to midnight.
And if you want to keep your peace of mind during the other hours of your life too, get a Chipolo finder. Not only will it make your misplaced keys and phone ring, but it will also alert you if you ever leave without your belongings.
