Use a Flash Drive as a Computer Alarm



This a really cool how-to on protecting your laptop with a flash drive. Working on a college campus people are always asking about ways to secure their laptops in the dorms. I’m sure everyone has a old flash drive laying around and if you don’t they are extremely cheap. The software is called LAlarm and is free for personal use. If the flash drive is pulled from the computer an alarm will sound. I had some questions about turning off the computer but there are settings to disable the computer being turned off unless an authorized user is logged on. It still requires you, the laptop owner, to take the necessary steps to plug in the flash drive.
