Schools are getting back into session, and whether you are a teacher, therapist or student, you need to know how to protect your mobile devices! I am starting to write my dissertation and have implemented several backup strategies for my files. But I would be dealt a serious blow if my laptop was stolen or lost! When I was doing music therapy in the public schools, I also relied on my laptop and mobile phone to keep up with schedules and reports. Luckily, I never had a problem, but I have heard from many friends who lost their tech devices due to theft! 

 The Prey Project Application is an open-source program and initiative to help people react more proactively to the theft of their devices. The FREE program allows you to track your computer or phone, block access with a password and even take a picture of the user with the webcam! I have already downloaded and installed the program and feel better already. (I really wish the program could send an electric shock to a thief too, but maybe that will be in a future update...!)
