The download is less than 1MB, and the setup program looks the same as the main program that you launch after installation. LAlarm runs as a background process when you start your laptop. In my tests, it took up an insignificant 7.5MB of memory, so you probably won’t even notice that it is running.
Improve Laptop Security and Protect Against Theft. Securing your laptop is simple and can be done in two ways: 1. If your laptop is connected to a power outlet, simply lock it with the Win+L key shortcut. 2. If there is no power outlet available: a) Use a neck-strap or USB extension cord with any old flash drive and insert it into a USB port. b) Tie the neck-strap or cord to a firm table. c) Lock the laptop with the Win+L shortcut. That’s it. Now, when someone attempts to steal your laptop, either the power cord or the USB flash drive will get disconnected from the laptop.
This triggers the Theft Alarm, and the thief will get a nasty shock because the laptop will emit a loud siren like a car alarm. In my testing, I was worried about neighbors rushing to see what was happening! The alarm stops only when you unlock the laptop by entering your login credentials.
