Protect your laptop and tablet!



Losing a laptop or tablet at any time is always a painful experience.  Here’s how you can protect yours:

  1. Never leave yours visible and unattended even for just a minute unless you have it secured with cable lock (available at the Library and Campus Center).
  2. Backup everything important (to an external hard drive, CD/DVD, Google Drive).
  3. Register your device the Google Doc My Inventory at Macalester (http://goo.gl/bjeev). Your chances of recovery are much better if you can readily provide law enforcement identifying information (e.g., make, model, serial number). 
  4. Consider installing laptop tracking software such as Prey, available FREE at preyproject.com.
