Learn About Absolute LoJack Before Your Laptop Is Stolen #DigitallyDark
Disclaimer: This post is brought to you by Absolute LoJack. However, all opinions are my own.
A laptop is stolen every 50 seconds. Just a little after 4am this morning, my friend’s 50 seconds of violation showed up. Her laptops were stolen. No it wasn’t during an over night home invasion, a thief watched as she packed her luggage in the trunk of her car for a 6am flight and waited until she went back inside to steal her things. “I noticed the trunk of my car was open and my suitcase, my laptop and my extra bag were all missing. Within 10 minutes of me leaving my car, someone stole my belongings, both my personal and business laptop and my sense of peace!” After speaking with my friend about the ordeal and failed assistance from the police, all I could think about is how happy I was that she was safe, but how horrible she must’ve felt knowing that someone planned on violating her this morning.
Personal theft is real and more rampant than ever. More and more adults, students and children carry more than one personal computer, tablet or smartphone at any given time. You would never want to be in my friend’s situation and seeking assistance and solace from an unfortunate situation like this – fortunately with Absolute LoJack you don’t have to.
This past weekend, I participated in the Absolute LoJack Challenge in which I was challenged to go #DigitallyDark by giving up the use of my laptop for an entire 48-hours. The challenge was a healthy way to unplug from my usual 7-Day work week and I welcomed the break from starring at my computer screen with open arms. There were times in which I did want to quickly check email or update a status via Facebook using my MacBook Air but I resisted the urge completely. Although my feelings yesterday were nothing like the feelings that my friend encountered today – it made me realize just how much we are attached to our beloved smartphones, tablets and computers – more than ever before.
