Keep Your Laptop on a Short Leash with Quality Laptop Locks

Staying on campus next year and worried about the safety of your device, or are you an office worker using your device in a place where many people congregate? Your device holds all your contacts, passwords, photographs, and important documents and files – but its mobility makes it an easy target for thieves. So, it is important to protect your device and the intellectual property stored on it from being stolen.

Opportunity Makes a Thief

Did you know that in 2018, there were 1,2 million incidences of theft of personal property in South Africa, with laptops high on the list? Whether you have company reports, customer data, notes, artwork, or the next best novel, the cost of losing a laptop is far greater than the value of the hardware itself.

Sure, you could purchase the latest remote-wiping software, which will obliterate your hard drive the moment the thief connects to the internet – but you could also get an affordable, easy-to-use laptop lock. Today, manufacturers equip devices with a small lock slot that works with a lock. Like a bicycle chain lock, these locks are perfect for the campus, home, office, hotel, or anywhere you feel at risk. How they work is simple: find a solid, immovable anchor point and wrap the cable around the object, and your device will become theft-proof.

While locking your laptop to a desk, bed, cubicle wall, or any anchor point may not look so \”cool\”, you will look a lot less \”cool\” without a laptop – especially if you are a student on campus. These security gadgets are an easy and inexpensive way to secure your laptop. They are available in key or combination versions and can be purchased online from Legion Computer Accessories.
