Intel Gives All Ivy Bridge Laptops Anti-Theft Protection

Since laptops tend to get lost or misplaced, Intel has a certain service/feature called Anti-Theft, one that will be part of all Ivy Bridge laptops and is already found on many notebooks. 

VR-Zone is where the news came out that all Ivy Bridge Ultrabooks would have Anti-theft

Long story short, if you've lost your laptop or had it stolen, you just need to call the customer service hotline or find another computer, or just use the smartphone, to access the Anti-Theft service website and do it from there. 

Assuming the notebook is web-connected, a hardware-level security failsafe will be triggered, preventing the machine from booting. 

You can also program an auto lockdown timer when you first set up your account. That way, you can be sure that your data is safe. 

Be warned though: setting up a timer means you have to input a password every time the duration expires.
