London-based Snuko, P.L.C., a European laptop and smartphone security giant, has done great business protecting laptop and smartphone users from the identity threat associated with laptop and cellular phone theft. Snuko has recognized the strong correlation between the use of its product and the recovery of stolen laptops and precious technology. It’s a good thing companies like Snuko have come forward to protect technology users because research reveals laptop theft is now easier than ever.

A simple ‘Google’ search reveals just how simple it is for thieves to walk away with someone’s laptop computer. Within the past week, a larceny victim in San Antonio, California, United States, was easily deprived of his precious laptop on the platform of the Caltrain commuter rail. Reports indicate that the victim was easily denied of his laptop and wallet after thieves after multiple blows to the face and body. After this devastating experience, reports have not surfaced as to the recovery of the items. Had the victim been wise to install Snuko’s BlackBox technology, his overall experience may have been mitigated by the safe return of his valuable belongings.
With the ease and proficiency associated with laptop theft, the problem has only been compounded around the holidays as home invasions have drastically increased. Burglaries and larcenies commonly increase dramatically during the Christmas and Hanukah season as thieves know homeowners are keeping costly gifts in the home. Always be sure to safeguard your laptops and smartphones to be given as gifts in the ill-fated chance a home invasion occurs during the holiday season.
