As you may be aware by now, Absolute LoJack has dubbed August Device Theft Awareness Month, and I’ve been sharing tidbits of information about the security of your smartphone and other devices throughout the month. I really want to talk about laptops today because while many people use their smartphones daily for things like social media and emails, everyone uses their laptops for the serious stuff like banking, paying the bills and handling really sensitive information – like doing our taxes or even just storing copies of our tax returns.

Have you ever thought about the security of your laptop? I know that we all think because we keep our laptop at home, our of sight, in our laptop bag, etc, that it’s safe. Even a password-protected login screen might not be enough! Take this How Secure is Your Laptop quiz to figure out how safe your laptop really is – you might be surprised!

Of course, I scored pretty well on this quiz and that’s probably why I have never had a device  - let alone my beloved laptop – stolen or lost. There’s a reason why I scored well: my husband works in IT. I’ve learned a lot of security measures through plain old common sense but his guidance has also helped me keep my valuables safe over the years, especially considering how much I travel!

Now, as safe as I am with my laptop, things happen. Angeline’s iPhone was stolen last year, despite her best efforts. We need to take measures to protect our devices, especially our laptops that hold such personal and vulnerable information, in case something happens that is out of our control.

That’s where Absolute LoJack comes in! I bet you didn’t even know that there was an Absolute LoJack for laptops before this series, did you? Now that my travel schedule has slowed down and I will be home for a while, I am sending my new laptop in to have Absolute LoJack installed!

It’s really like having a tracker on  your laptop to shut it down and keep all of your private information safe if it’s lost or stolen but the service also means that you have a dedicated team of investigators looking for your lost/stolen laptop too!

Absolute LoJack security software and Theft Recovery Team can track and recover it for you. 30,000 devices in over 100 countries have been returned thanks the software, the team and their relationships with law enforcement world-wide.

    I can’t even imagine having my laptop stolen. I would freak out because all my photos are on here.

    LoJack for the laptop- I really need to look more into this! I’ve had a lot of security issues with all of my mobile electronics, so I know it’s definitely important!

    I have never heard of this company, sounds great though! I always worry about losing something on my computer, cause it has all the things I need for work! Good to have security!

    I need to get this for my husband. He spends too much time at coffee shops with his laptop and it’s always better to be on the safe side.

  5. says

    I really like this service. I am always so afraid of traveling with my beloved MacBook because I don’t want it to get stolen. Knowing my information would be safe is a good thing.

  6. Pam says

    This is really cool! I have never had a phone or laptop stolen but you can never be too careful these days. It would be nice to have people who could track it down for me if I did ever have tech lost or stolen.

  7. says

    I’ve known many people that have gotten their phones and other tech devices stolen during vacation! You’re lucky you haven’t.

  8. Amy Desrosiers says

    I think having Lojack for my ipad and iphone is really important!! We take these devices on the road so I wouldnt want to ever lose them.

  9. says

    My husband’s cell phone was stolen at work. Ugh! It was such a nightmare. Thankfully it didn’t create any real security problems for us, but having to go through all of your accounts to verify is a huge burden.
