Recovery Stories at Some of the Largest Universities Across the U.S. Reinforce Need to Protect Laptops as Students Go Back to School
VANCOUVER July 20, 2011 ®
Recently named Editors’ Choice by PC Magazine, LoJack for Laptops is must-have theft recovery software for college students. Once installed on a computer, its patented persistence technology allows owners to remotely locate and lock the stolen device, as well as delete important files to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands. In addition, LoJack for Laptops is the only software available that is backed by a dedicated team of ex-law enforcement professionals. The Absolute Theft Recovery Team completely eliminates the need for laptop theft victims to take measures into their own hands, as they maintain relationships with more than 6,000 police departments around the world to return laptops safely to their rightful owners.

In another local case Absolute’s Theft Recovery Team sprang into action when a laptop was reported stolen and promptly provided information to the investigating officers. Using LoJack for Laptops’ advanced features, police found the victim’s laptop in a suspected crime den, along with guns, illegal drugs and more stolen property. Not only was the victim able to get back his laptop, he was also able to do so safely by allowing the experts to handle the criminal pursuit on his behalf.
