By now, we all know that smartphone and small gadget theft has become an epidemic – but did you know that your laptop is just as vulnerable?  Do you know what to do the moment you realize your laptop is stolen?  Losing your laptop is easier than you think, it’s so easy to fall into a senseless trap and mark yourself as the perfect target for theft.   August is ‘Device Theft Awareness Month’ and Absolute LoJack wants you to be informed and prepared for the unimaginable.   Just by avoiding theft snares with these preventative tips below, you can improve your chances of loosing your device or having it stolen in the first place.
Never leave your laptop unattended in public places.  It’s so easy to assume that everyone in the public will have your back and watch your things while you’re away to the bathroom or counter for coffee, but why risk it?

Beware of where you sit. If you must take your laptop with you to the coffee shop, don’t sit by the door where it’s easy for someone to snatch it and run. Don’t even leave it on the table when you go to pick up your $10 coffee!

Leave it in the car? Where? Not in plain sight and, if you put it in the trunk (still a risk), don’t let anyone see you, be discreet.

Going on vacation or business trip? Whatever you do, don’t check your laptop in your luggage. Not everyone is interested in protecting your property; even employees of the airport/airlines and TSA have been arrested for thefts of passenger’s property.

Plan on using that device on the plane? Don’t EVER put it in the pocket behind the seat: number one place laptops are lost on planes. They tend to fall down into the pocket and, after listening to the endless chatter of your neighbor, you forget you even put it there.

 

You may not have fallen victim those mistakes, but do you still think your laptop is safe?  Take the How Secure Is Your Laptop Quiz and learn your results today.

 

In case your laptop is stolen, there’s a peace of mind that’s waiting for you, but you have to act now.  Absolute LoJack is the only tool with dedicated investigation team dedicated to not only recovering your device but also working with local law enforcement to bring down the criminal(s) behind the theft.  Find my iPhone definitely doesn’t have that kind of team behind them.  LoJack for laptops ensures an effective plan to recover your lost or stolen computer.  If your device was lost or stolen, wouldn’t you want to have a team of professionals working hard for you?  I know I would… and I do!

Learn About Absolute LoJack Before Your Laptop Is Stolen #DigitallyDark

March 17th, 2014 by Christen

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.
