Anti-theft lock


Hi,


We've been recently robbed and they took a laptop. I've gone to MyBitdefender to lock it but not sure if it worked. Can you provide me with more info and details about it? And the "Wipe" function as well? 


Thanks in advance,


John

  • Hi, 



    First of all the computer needs to have an internet connection in order for the commands to work. 



    The lock command should use your current  Windows password, though you can choose to set a new one in case the laptop did not previously have a password setup.



    The wipe command will basically erase the harddisk so that your data cannot be accessed. 


  • Hi,


    Thanks for the info. I wasn"t sure about the lock, so we've tried with another computer at home, entered a lock code, and we got a message saying the command was pushed to the server. however, the other laptop isn't locked and still fully functional. Did we miss something in order to lock it?

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
