Are you a frequent traveler having a laptop, who is concerned that it may get stolen somewhere while traveling? To help you in tracking your laptop, there are many tracking software available in market from long ago.

But, a new software, called Retriever has been designed and developed by a Colorado-based firm, Front Door Software Corporation that offers a unique and new feature that other software don't offer currently.

Stolen laptop shouting for help

The new feature that Retriever offers is that it allows laptops to shout for help if they have been stolen, making it the first software to allow owners to activate recorded messages.

It will enable users to set a spoken message such as a shout or a warning and even display alerts on the missing laptop's screen.

It can also collect information about the location of the thief in case it is being used to access Internet so that police can be alerted.

Owners must report their laptop missing by logging on to a website, which sends a message to the computer, triggering on-screen messages to the thief or voice alerts or both.

The cost of Retriever is around 21 pounds or you can try out 90 day free trial version from Front Door Software website.

Wondering, how the laptop will be able to shout if the sound has been muted or there is no sound driver installed. :-)
