If you are the parent of a college student, did you send them back to school with a laptop or mobile device? If you did, they’re among the 70% of college students with devices that are the most stolen items on college campuses. 1 laptop is stolen every 53 seconds! Laptops and smartphones are easy targets because they’re small, portable, easy to disguise because almost everyone has one, and can be easily resold for a high dollar amount.
Protect your investment with the 2120DWD Set-Your-Own Combination SafeSpaceTM Laptop Computer Lock ($19.99) from Master Lock. It secures your laptop easily and quickly whether studying in your dorm room, using it in the library, or using it to catch up with social networks while dining in the campus cafe. The SafeSpace Laptop Computer allows students to walk away from their laptops without their laptops “walking away” from them thanks to a strong, self-coiling cable, trusted dial locking mechanism and durable metal construction helps protect valuable electronics and ultimate personalization with more than 10,000 numeric or alpha combination possibilities adds extra security.
Even with a secured laptop, it’s important to secure private information. Connecting through public wifi networks, leaving sensitive documents such as bank statements or credit card statements lying around in your room, and retrieving paperwork via the campus mail room puts any student at risk for identity theft. Master Lock Vault helps protect student information by serving as a free digital safe deposit box that offers convenient storage and industry-leading security. One password to unlocks user names, passwords, lock combinations, account information, and digital documents. Students can even program important reminder notifications and enjoy 24/7 access via smart phone app or website, available at www.MasterLockVault.com.
