How Computrace Technology Works

Computrace is powered by Absolute Software patented Computrace persistence technology. When embedded in the firmware of computers from leading computer manufacturers, Computrace can survive operating system re-installations, as well as hard-drive reformats, replacements and re-imaging, helping to ensure that the service is there when you need it most.* Whether in a PC or Mac, the software is virtually undetectable and calls home to the Absolute Monitoring Center with asset information including location. If a computer is reported stolen, the Absolute Theft Recovery Team works on behalf of the customer to gather evidence from the computer to identify the thief’s location, and then works with local police to get the computer back. Customers can also remotely retrieve files and delete data from devices to help keep it out of the hands of unauthorized users. Computrace can be easily activated by customers when they install a license ranging from 1-3 years.
