Results for: Find my device
Hello everybody, I recent misplaced my laptop which probably found it's new owner by now. In a classic case of idiotism, I have not turned on the Find my device feature, so I have basically said goodbye to it. I would like to ask for some advice though. Is there anything I can do remotely about my data protection? I have performed the basic stuff like changing passwords to everything I could think off, logging out remotely from gmail and facebook. But how about the data on the laptop itself? Regards Jan
