You may remember a few months ago when I told you about a valuable resource for anyone that has a portable computer, tablet, or smartphone. Absolute Lojack is a theft recovery solution that will help you find your smartphone, and recover your stolen laptop or tablet. Not only will you be able to locate your device, you can also remotely lock it and permanently wipe your files. Absolute Lojack even protects your device against clever thieves who attempt to format the hard drive. The patented Absolute persistence technology re-installs the software despite their best efforts. How cool is that? Because of this your identity and your data stay protected.

I am once again working with Absolute Lojack during the Absolute LoJack Uncovered program to help you learn how to protect your devices. Throughout the month of August (and beyond) I will be sharing valuable tips on keeping your devices and your data safe. I’ll be sharing crime prevention information so hopefully you will not ever have to go through getting your device stolen and your data used for evil!

Did you know that 3.1 million people were the victims of smartphone theft in 2013?

That number is staggering!  Considering that our smartphones probably contain a lot of our personal data such as contact information, access to bank accounts, social media accounts, and email if one is stolen we feel like we are missing a part of our life. And this gives thieves all the information that they need to hack into our accounts and possibly use our information for identity theft.

Where is my smartphone?

This is why we want to help you. The #AbsoluteUncovered program is designed make us think about what most of us don’t want to think about. The fact that mobile devices & laptops are a target and the data on them is just as important to the thief as the device.

Learn how to protect your data. Stay tuned throughout the remainder of the month for information, tips, and tricks to protect your devices.
