Adeona: Free Laptop Tracker

Adeona: Free Laptop Tracker:

"Adeona is a free laptop tracker that helps you track your laptop if it gets stolen. You install Adeona software client on your laptop, pick a password and let it run in the background. Unlike similar commercial tools, Adeona is decentralized and doesn’t store your password on its servers. It means no one besides the owner can use Adeona to track your laptop.

If the laptop gets stolen, it will send its IP address when it is connected to the Internet. The IP address can then be retrieved using the Adeona Recovery Wizard. Knowing the IP address is enough in most cases to track the geographical location of the device."
