My laptop was stolen - how do I protect myself?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

This may seem like a simple question, but I've never really thought of what to do in this situation.

 

My bag with my laptop inside was stolen yesterday. Insurance will cover it but I'm worried about data and security.

 

It had Windows 10 on it, password protected but not encrypted. I'm concerned about someone being able to get past the password protection and access all of my online accounts, data etc. 

 

Can Windows login passwords be bypassed? What can I do to protect myself? Chances are they will just wipe it and sell it on but I'm thinking worst case scenario.

 

Thank you :)

I would personally not take any chances and, sadly, change ALL your passwords to EVERY account you own.
Eventhough they probably won't get inside your Windows installation, they might be able to bypass it somehow or access your laptops harddisk from another PC.

It really sucks and I feel for you, but I would most definitely change all your passwords just to be sure thumb.gif
Like you say: think worst case scenario, which is thiefs entering all your beloved accounts filled with personal details.

The regular Windows login can be bypassed with a simple USB-drive and some easily accessed software.
We used it all the time at a school i worked at in the past.

Students wanted us to repair their laptops, yet refused to remove their passwords. The solution was to use software to remove the passwords entirely and the process doesn't take more than 2-3 minutes.

Most "remembered" passwords are accessable as well, with simple and free software. (SIW tool is one of them)

So I would change all the passwords that might be in danger.

Either way, he wouldn't need the MAC address. A serial number is sufficient.

That said, thieves rarely sell local or on online market places (unless they're are stupid). I wish him luck, he'll need it rolleyes.gif
Insurance covers it anyway...

Thanks all. I'll change all my passwords.

 

Chances of getting it back are slim to be honest. Oh well, I get a new laptop in return :p

And start using Keepass thumb.gif

I've been meaning to start using LastPass for a while now, any views on that vs KeePass?

I suggest next time encrypt your hard drive or at least your valuable information, as for lastpass its very easy to sync passwords across devices that's why I still use it.
KeePass on the other hand is very secure because the database is on your computer and not saved in the cloud.
