stolen labtop

By SystemCheck ·
This labtop we have has been stolen there is nothing we can do now, im hoping that there is somebody that knows of a good freeware labtop tracker (non trial open source) that relays all information back to us and not some random support team, pretty much we want to see all the information

The tracker has to be installed BEFORE laptop's stolen

by OldER Mycroft In reply to stolen labtop

So in your case, you're correct when you stated "there is nothing we can do now".

You should've been considering the possibility of the theft, and installing the tracker software, PRIOR to the laptop getting pinched.

As for your search for a Freeware, Open Source laptop tracker - how much is your laptop worth to you? Whatever figure enters your mind regarding the inherent value of the laptop and the data it contains - why does the tracker have to be a FREE one?

PC PhoneHome does exactly what it says on the tin, sends an email to this Company Database AND a personal email account of your designation at time of install, every time the laptop is connected to the internet. But it ain't free.

I have to ask you, if your possession was a motorcycle or an automobile would you be quite so gung-ho as to the fact that the security system HAD to be free?

Of course, if the laptop had a boot password, it will be all but unusable for the thief.

You might consider taking out a bespoke insurance policy on the next laptop. One that covers theft.

Oh -but wait a minute - that wouldn't be free.
