You are right, one might think that our editorial staff spent too much time in the sun, but the matter of the fact still remains: Microsoft are considering laptops, where all your data are safe in the event of theft.
The technology Microsoft wish to add to their laptops is actually heavily inspired from the technology used in Smartphones. Here you can lock your phone and data which makes the smartphone almost useless, and worth nothing in the hands of the thief. The fact that almost all laptops are online by either Wi-Fi or Cellular networks makes this technology a possibility for laptops.
The timetable for the addition to their laptops is currently unknown, but since computer and network technology advances at such a rapid pace, we are most likely not talking years.
Although new technology makes it harder for thieves and hackers to access ones computer and data, you should keep making sure that your computer and data are safe. What is the point of theft protection if you are being hacked and lose all of your data and your accounts are emptied?
The easiest and most secure way of protecting against hackers is to stay vigilant when downloading and opening files on your computer. 9/10 cyberattacks are due to users being unaware that they are accepting malware when downloading files.
