Keep it off the floor and get it out of the car
Two common mistakes that can result in your laptop or mobile device being stolen is solved by keeping it off the floor and get it out of the car.
Keeping it off the floor
No matter where you are in public - at a conference, a coffee shop, or a registration desk - avoid putting your laptop on the floor. If you must put it down, place it between your feet or at least up against your leg, so that you're aware of it.
Get it out of the car
Don't leave your laptop in the car - not on the seat, not in the trunk. Parked cars are a favorite target of laptop thieves; don't help them by leaving your laptop unattended. If you must leave your laptop behind, keep it out of sight.
