Most of you may already be aware of the Quick Heal’s laptop tracking service. For those who do not know, we have started a new initiative with the hope to recover stolen laptops by starting the service of tracking stolen laptops through the portal TrackMyLaptop.net. It offers a free service for individuals to trace their stolen laptop. The portal is designed to act as a platform to unite the laptop-using community, law enforcement authorities and the Quick Heal team to share information and to combat the growing menace of laptop theft.
This service is free of cost for Quick Heal users as well as for users not using Quick Heal. There are many laptop tracking services and technologies available globally but these entire tend to fail if the person who steals the laptop does a hard format of the disk before connecting the stolen laptop to Internet. If the software that periodically sends the laptop location to server over internet gets over written and removed then the tracking becomes almost impossible.
With TrackMyLaptop portal there is some more hope of recovering the laptop even after format because of following reasons:
– We have several law enforcement authorities checking the stolen laptop database on our portal for the owners of the laptops that they have recovered/found from criminals. There is some hope as several thieves are caught with laptop who never reveal that the laptop is stolen. With TrackMyLaptop portal these cybercrime police authorities can verify if the laptop is among the reported stolen laptops.
– TrackMyLaptop.net also have a interface for users who are purchasing used laptop. This service helps them to make sure that the laptop they are buying is not a stolen laptop. Its noble way of making sure that we are not supporting laptop theft by not purchasing the stolen laptop. We have 100s of users checking daily the used laptop before buying the laptop. This way your stolen laptop can get traced if the thief is trying to sell the stolen laptop in the market to an unsuspected user and if that user happens to check it on our portal.
I here by appeal to all the users who are purchasing a used laptop to visit our TrackMyLaptop.net portal and verify and make sure that they are not buying any stolen laptop. If every used laptop buyer does this kind of check there will be no laptop thefts as most of the laptop thefts happen to sell the stolen laptop and not use it for themselves. This will help in social cause of reducing the laptop theft.
Please pass on this information to all your friends and relatives who are using laptops or planning to purchase laptop.
