Safety tip to safeguard laptops from theft
Ever lost a laptop due to theft in public places?
Here's a quick tip to safeguard your laptop from theft in public places:
Many people might have come across a mini- USB like slot in a laptop.
But for what this slot is actually used?
This slot called as the Kensington Security Slot is an anti-theft system that allows us to attach our laptop to any immovable object using certain hardware accessories such as the Kensington lock.
These locks have a cylindrical anchor attached to a long metal cable.This cylindrical anchor is connected to the slot using a number combination and the other end of the cable can be connected to any immovable object.
The thief will neither be able to cut the metal cable nor try to break the lock as it would damage the laptop and he wouldn't be able to resell it.
So, the next time while going to any public place, you can leave behind the laptop freely without the fear of losing it.
