GadgetTrak’s “mobile security software” has you covered when it comes to misplaced smartphones, laptops, flash drives, iPads, and other tech tools. According to its website, GadgetTrak uses GPS, Wi-Fi, and cell tower triangulation to track the location of lost or stolen devices, as well as back up data, set off alarms, and remotely wipe out personal data.

GadgetTrak blogged about privacy measures it has taken to protect customers. “[We] implemented a privacy-safe method that allows the user to enter an encryption key on their device,” wrote Ken Westin, ActiveTrak founder and CEO. “The software then uses this key to encrypt the images and contacts using government grade encryption and uploads it to the server.”
