We all know tablets, smartphones, and laptops are attractive targets for thieves. Not only is the equipment inherently valuable, but think of all the data, pictures, and account information you have saved on your phone! The time to protect yourself is before your device is stolen.
MakeUseOf.com has written some helpful posts on how to prepare your devices for the worst case scenario. I would recommend reading two short articles: Don’t Be a Victim: Practical Tips To Protect Your Smartphone From Theft and Identify the Guy Who Stole Your Phone, Tablet, or Laptop.
If thieves make you angry, and you would like to gloat at their humiliation and capture, try Revenge of the geek: MacBook thief made a fool of on YouTube. The end of the article contains links to more stories of foiled electronics thieves.
