Laptop Tracker

HP Envy 17 inch with Leap Moti
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I am looking for a Laptop Tracker. there has been many breakin's recently in my area, so I want to get some sort of Tracker for my Laptop, be it hardware or Sodtware. Its strange that they've never put these in Laptops. Could wipe out 90% of Laptop thefts. So I seen a few software, not convinced they any use, because they need to get past windows Security first, so is there any software that will work on load up or is there any Hardware you can get that you can hardware that can be clipped to or hidden in a Laptop that could give out a GPRS signal or Location of a Laptop?

Then, I heartily recommend Lojack for Laptops!

 

It loads automatically and is hidden, so you don't see it.

 

I've tried it out to see if it really can locate my laptop, and it works.


Good Luck

Sounds good, but will they be able to remove the software with a reformat? I think Laptop companies should be building in GPRS trackers as standard

OF course, they would ... unless you were able to find a product that "burned" the functionality into UEFI firmware -- and I have not seen anything like that.
