Anti-virus solution provider Quick Heal has launched a new service, which helps law enforcement agencies in tracking and recovering lost laptops. To avail the service, a laptop owner has to first register with ‘Quick Heal’ on its website through a Mac-id, and it keeps continuous track of the laptop.
If the laptop is stolen, the tracker service traces it on the basis of Mac-id and IP addresses. This information can then be used by the police to track the laptop down and retrieve it. The service is free of charge and can be availed by anybody.
The method is aimed at helping police by providing them an interface with the website, said the company Managing Director and CEO Kailash Katkar. “This technology from Quick Heal will provide a powerful tool to the society at large and to the police, thus reducing their burden,” he said .
