Lojack on Yoga 13

2013-01-23, 4:49 AM

I set up and paid for this program. But it puts my laptop hundreds of miles away in another city. How can this be helpful in recovery? If it uses IP addresses etc. how can it be so far off? Should I be asking for a refund?

Check the Maps app in the Metro interface and make sure your GPS can find you (don't use google or bing maps via a browser). If it does, my guess would be that Lojack is using your IP address and not the GPS to find the location.

 

I'm not sure which version you use, but the Standard one only supports IP information (see http://www.absolute.com/support/consumer/technology under what type of technology is required to geographically locate my computer)

 

Also, I've used Prey before - seems pretty good to me (if you trust OpenSource and free) - http://preyproject.com/

Thanks for the suggestion. The maps app does not seem to find me when I press my location. Is there anything I need to do to set it up first? Thanks again.
