So I came home from work a few hours ago to discover someone hade broken into my apartement through a window and stolen my laptop and my ipad. As far as I know they did not steal anything else. These are my primary tools for studing making the next week really shitty. I had a paper on the laptop that is due in 8 hours.... though I have called my teacher and got a extension until monday.
However... since my laptop was neither locked or encrypted what should I consider trying to protect myself digitally? Im mostly worried about them accessing information through saved sessions, cookeis etc. in chrome and using it for ordering items and such.
I have cancelled one of my credit cards and limited funds on the other (need to be able to buy food).
I am changing passwords right now and expect to be up all night continuing to do this. Then tomorrow I will find my insurance papers and call the insurance company as well as try to find a new laptop.
I have set my stolen ipad (through iCloud) to erase as soon as it gets connected to the internet. Any way to track my laptop?
I live in Sweden so identity theft is not really a risk for me. Police has already been here and crime lab people will come tomorrow.
