Protect your electronic devices from theft and your data from unauthorized access if lost or stolen.
Each year MIT sees a steady increase in items stolen from campus including desktop and laptop computers, computer accessories such as hard drives, mobile devices and phones. As an urban campus that is open to the public, it is easy for thieves to gain access to buildings and areas where we store or use these electronics. With a little bit of time and low cost, you can protect your computer or mobile device from theft.
