Hello! I bought a new laptop and there is some software and I guess hardware too from the company called Absolute Software. After some research I came to conclusion that it is some kind of tracking pre-installed by the retailer. Can I get rid of it somehow?

Hi Victor!

Absolute Software is a company that specializes on LoJack trackers for laptops, just like those used for bike tracking. But there are some differences in the work of LoJack tracker for laptops and the similar tracker for motorcycles. Laptop LoJack tracker sends its signal to the Absolute Software website where user can log in and perform some actions on the laptop which I will describe you in details now.

The first option is called Locate. After receiving the LoJack signal from the laptop this feature allows user to find the location of your laptop with the help of GPS, WiFi and IP address of the laptop that it gets when it is online. Delete is the second option and it allows user to delete any unencrypted data on your laptop if there is such need. The third option is called Lock and, as you have probably already guessed, it allows user to lock your laptop remotely and completely, absolutely preventing its usage. The last one is called Recover and it is used as the proof that the user is the owner of the laptop when it is located by the first feature.

So, if the retailer has not informed you about that software and hardware and did not give you the login and password for this then your laptop might be in great danger, so as you. In order to prevent possible consequences you can stop LoJack tracker in your laptop, preventing its signal from reaching the website of Absolute Software. But if you want to avoid just location tracking, you can use multifrequency desktop jammer for that purpose.
