Are there hardware I can embed inside my laptop that allow me to track the laptop even when its off?


#1

I have lost a few laptops with various software such as Lojack, Prey and others. The problem is since they are formatted the software is normally erased with the software as well. My question is: are there hardware I can embed inside my laptop that allow me to track the laptop even when its off? If so how do they work and where can I get them? Thank you

There isn’t anything like that as far as I know. Some laptops come with hardware-assisted tracking, to allow you to trace the computer even after a hard drive wipe, but I haven’t heard of any device that will track the computer when it is completely powered down.
