LaptopLock protects the data and aids in the recovery process of a computer if it's stolen. The LaptopLock can:

Delete information
Encrypt files
Show a message to the user
Play a sound
Visible or hidden from user


How do I setup LaptopLock?
Sign up for a free account to register the computer(s). Install the LaptopLock agent for Windows2000/XP. Complete the setup wizard, to create a set of actions in case the computer is stolen.


How does LaptopLock work?
If the computer is stolen, login into your account, mark the computer status as stolen. As soon as that machine connects to the Internet, the actions you set during setup will execute. LaptopLock will also try to find out as much as possible about the connection to help in recovery of the machine. THE LAPTOPLOCK DOES NOT MONITOR OR RECORD USER ACTIONS. THE LAPTOPLOCK DOES NOT ALLOW ANYONE ACCESS TO YOUR COMPUTER OR DATA. THE LAPTOPLOCK CAN ONLY EXECUTE ACTIONS THE USER HAS PRE-PROGRAMMED IT WITH.

What if there is no internet connection?
If after a while LaptopLock has been unable to connect to the Internet, it could ask the user to verify their identity by asking for a password. This option is set during installation and depends on how visible LaptopLock's presense should be.
