Just watched a programme on BBC TV about theft of laptops. Apparently you get install tracking software which will enable the police to recover your laptop in the event of theft.

Does anyone have experience of this type of software and is there any particular one which is recommended.

Thank you.

I used to have Prey which has good write ups. But I don't take my laptop out and about much if at all nowadays and the iPad and iPhone have the Find my iPhone app which gives the location of the device and you can block the data.
