LaptopLock: An Online Lock for Laptops

Among Chris Pirillo's picks yesterday was a post about LaptopLock, an online service for protecting against laptop theft. The pick was called Recovery help for lost or stolen laptops.

A laptop owner can create an account on the site for their laptop. They then install a client, which follows the user's instructions. If the laptop is lost or stolen and a malicious user tries to access the Internet, they'll be asked to authenticate. Without the valid user ID and password, a malicious user is locked out.

I added an entry on my web site for LaptopLock. Click on Hardware in the left hand navigation and the page with the link will appear.
