If you are wondering how you will be able to keep your laptop safe and free of any theft, then all that you need would be common sense. You should not think too much since you will only need to think clear enough and avoid making mistakes when handling your laptop in areas that have many people.
Laptops are a good prospect for many felons because they are so small that making them disappear would be easy. Along with this, they have a high value making them more attractive to other people. Add the fact that they can be hard to track once they're gone, since there are no actual universal control numbers for laptops, and that it is very easy to modify how they look, and to change everything on the software side. This is why if you are traveling with your laptop, you should do it very cautiously.
One of the most common areas where laptops are lost is in the airport. Many laptop thefts would have been avoided if in the first place, people would not have left their laptops unattended. So, the first step to avoid your laptop being lost, is to always make sure that it is within your sight. You should not let it be misplaced even when you are too busy arranging your flight. If you are too sleepy, you should at least try to put your hand, foot, or any part of your body in contact with your laptop. This will prevent other people from getting it.
