Sunday Post: Never have a laptop stolen (and not recovered) again!


This is a very important Sunday post – if you own a valuable laptop computer. Do this now.

Monday through Saturday, we discuss B2B marketing and lead generation. Sundays are different.

Macbook Pro

Recently I read an article about purses and laptops stolen at Starbucks. So when I read a story in the Huffington Post about how a man in Canada quickly tracked and recovered a stolen MacBook Pro hundreds of miles away in New York City – my interest was piqued.

As read the article was surprised at how simple it was – using special software and Twitter. Using the software below he learned everything about the thief, and by connecting with others using Twitter, he found local people willing to help. (Follow @fearlesscomp on Twitter, by the way.)

This is the app he used to track and recover his laptop. And it is FREE! Combine this tracking app with the power of Facebook and Twitter and you’ve got a powerful weapon against theft.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could do thing these when needed?

  • Turn on physical tracking, e.g, GPS, IP address, etc.
  • Turn on webcam – take a picture of thief (Click the underlined words to see the image of the thief he tweeted)
  • Lock it down – block the thief from accessing your information

Those are just some of the things you can do remotely with the free software from Prey Project. (It’s free for individual users. They charge IT shops.) Watch this video to see how it works.
