Tech Tips, Talk & Advice For Your Computer Email us at:

Summer is almost here and many of you will be traveling on vacation. You may be taking your laptop computers or using technology to get where you are going such as a GPS Navigation device, here are some tips before you fly or drive to your destination.

Avoid using a computer bag, thieve watch for people who travel with a computer bag, if you bring your laptop, put it in a back pack or luggage that way it is not obvious that you are car- rying a laptop with you.

Keep your laptop in site, when going thru security do not let your computer leave your site, approximately 1500 laptops a day get stolen at airport security check points.

Do not keep passwords with the laptop. Most laptops have the option in the computer BIOS to enable boot password, with that option enabled you must enter a password before your computer will boot into the operating sys- tem. Many of us forget pass- words and write them down or keep them with the computer. Keep passwords separate from the computer, put them on a piece of paper in your wallet or

purse, or maybe in your cell phone, which you also need to keep tight grips on, password protect your cell phone and GPS also. Anything you can do to deter the thief. Should your computer, cell phone or GPS get stolen and it is password pro- tected, notify the manufacture that they were stolen. The only way a password can be removed is if the thief sends the device to the manufacture to have the password removed, the manu- facture will look at the serial number if you reported it as stolen they will notify the police and it will be returned to you.

Encrypt your data on your lap- top. Use a free program such as Truecrypt at, it will secure your information and only allow you access to it.

Buy a laptop security device, if you need to leave your laptop in a room or at your desk, use a laptop security cable to securely attach it to a heavy chair, table, or desk. The cable makes it more difficult for someone to take your laptop. There are also programs that will report the location of a stolen laptop. They work when the laptop connects to the Internet, and can report the laptop's exact physical loca- tion. One such tracing program is Computer Trace Lojack. This program will trace your com- puters location without the thief knowing there is a program working in the background. Many new laptops have that option for a monthly fee you can enable it in the computers BIOS.

When using your laptop use a screen guard, this keeps prying eyes from seeing information on your computer screen, especial- ly if you are at an airport depar- ture gate people may be looking over your shoulder without your knowledge.

If your laptop is stolen change your email password, notify your internet provider and change your internet password if you use high speed such as Charter and you have an e-mail account call them to change
