September marks the return to school for many people - either to high school or university. The reality of school these days is that many - if not most - students will now have laptops. And a student may find his or herself spending time studying in the library with that laptop. So, how can you keep it safe?
Presumably, you already have Computrace LoJack for Laptops installed. In the event that your laptop is stolen, we can help recover it. Of course, you want to prevent that theft to begin with, so let's look at some tips for that.
There is NO foolproof method of securing your laptop if you leave it unattended. The ONLY way to prevent theft is to take your laptop with you anytime you leave your work station - to get a book, to talk to someone or to use the washroom. It is a hassle, but it's worth it!
These same tips would apply any time you're out in a public place - be it around the school, in a cafe, or anywhere else. The only difference with the library is that a library may "feel" more safe - because of the secluded study areas. However, in reality, these private study areas make it much easier for someone to walk up and steal your laptop unnoticed if it's left unattended.
