This article provides laptop storage ideas to secure your laptop making essential reading for all types of laptop user.

This year, the 9th February marks Safer Internet Day which is co-ordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre. This event is aimed at raising awareness and thought surrounding how the internet is used and to encourage safe use by all. At Safety Storage Centre, this got us thinking about safety in connection with the device that millions use to access the internet – the laptop. What are the best ways to keep that expensive piece of kit safe?

In celebration of Safer Internet Day, Safety Storage Centre have come up with 5 top tips on how to keep your laptop safe and secure:

1. Buy a Laptop Security Case for when you are on the move. These cases are specifically designed to protect the laptop and its fragile and delicate components by having key padding and protection in all the right places. Importantly, their design is understated and discreet to avoid advertising the presence of a laptop to any potential thieves. They are also extremely convenient for the user by having plenty of storage space for notes, magazines and papers and this presents a major advantage to any traveller.

2. At Safety Storage Centre, our laptop security cases come fitted with a security cable and the proper use of this device is our second top tip for secure storage of your laptop. These cables tend to be made from steel and they allow you to attach your laptop to a fixed object for when you need to leave the device temporarily. This provides an added layer of safe storage for when you are in public places or for when you need to leave the laptop for an extended period of time at work or at college.

3. Regardless of the presence of a security cable, whether you are at school, in the workplace or travelling, you should ensure that you keep your laptop within your sight as much as possible. When this is not possible and you have to leave your laptop for long periods of time, you should store your laptop somewhere safe and secure rather than leaving it lying around unprotected. Laptop safes are ideal for this purpose, particularly in the residential, hotel or business setting. They are very easy to operate and feature modern electronic locking systems. For the school or heavily populated work environment, laptop lockers are a good bet as they have separate, secure compartments to allow for the safe storage of a number of laptops. This makes them ideal for environments with lots of laptop computers.

4. Ensure that you think about the heat generated by the key electrical components of your laptop. When charging your laptop, heat is generated by the electrical components and there are secure storage solutions specifically designed with this in mind to facilitate safe charging of the device. These are known as laptop charging trolleys and laptop charging lockers. They are specifically designed with ventilated compartments to ensure that heat is dissipated during charging. The trolleys are particularly useful by allowing for easy movement of the laptops, making them a highly portable safe storage solution. The trolleys even come in a narrow width option which is great for navigating between rows of desks in school and college environments.

5. Finally, as an added precaution, ensure that you keep a note of the make, model, serial and service number of your laptop. Then, in the event of the worst case happening and your laptop being stolen or going missing, you will be able to provide this information to the police and it may just help in tracing the device at a later date.

Finally, a bonus top tip…:
