As well as using money belts and locking your backpack have a look at the following tips to ensure you’re as safe as possible when backpacking:
- Don’t draw attention to yourself
- Try not to leave your bag unattended
- Try and keep a small amount of cash separate from your main belongings
- Photocopy your travel and insurance documents and keep these separate from the originals and your money, in case of loss or theft
- Scan your documents and keep them on your email in case all your documents are lost or stolen
- If on public transport and you feel the need to sleep, keep your belongings close to hand. If travelling with friends, it’s best to sleep in shifts.
- Be cautious about accepting food or drink from strangers
- Never hitchhike
- If taking a taxi, be sure that it is a licensed cab
- Keep your family and friends updated of your travel arrangements
Any backpackers got any other useful tips?
Hope this helps!

I think even if you have a lock on your bag it's not entirely safe as there will always be someone around who knows how to break that lock. the only way to know for sure that your bag is safe is to keep it in sight at all times.
