How to Find your Lost Laptop and
Protect Its Data Continued from page 21
This enables full disk encryption on a Mac for free. While
here, you may also want to enable the Firewall on the next tab
in Security & Privacy.

This Windows feature is about locating a lost device. As long
as the computer is turned on and connected to the internet, you can
track its location. The laptop can also periodically send its current
location to Microsoft so that you can determine its last known
location when the laptop is offline.

How to Encrypt your Windows PC:
If you own a PC with current Windows 7, 8, or
10 Pro (not Home)2 :
* Navigate to the Start Menu.
* Control Panel\System and Security\BitLocker Drive
Encryption.
* Turn on the free BitLocker or use a third party full drive
encryption program.

Some of those features, like locking and erasing your Mac,
can be activated even if the computer is off and implement
upon connection.

How to find your lost or stolen Windows 10 PC:
If you own a PC with current Windows 10 updates:
* Navigate to the Start Menu.
* Click on Settings.
* Navigate to Update & security > Find My Device.
* Click to enable the feature. You may need a free
Microsoft e-mail account.

Protected. Found.
You never know when your laptop might go missing, which is
why it's important to encrypt it now and enable "Find My Mac" or
"Find My Device" now, before it goes missing.
Do you want more functionality than these integrated Mac and
Windows tools? There are third party tools that will perform many
of these functions as well. For location and remote wipe, I have used
Absolute's LoJack for laptops.

program, or computer security tip, drop me a note at JFranklin@

A Pro upgrade for Windows 10 Home is typically $99 and available from
